The University of Southampton has established a number of interdisciplinary research groups that we call USRGs (University Strategic Research Groups) to develop cross-faculty, interdisciplinary initiatives. The USRGs address key national and international priority research areas towards understanding and alleviating some of society's global challenges, including climate change, population growth, ensuring energy and food supply, a healthy ageing of citizens and lifestyle diseases.
Our University Strategic Research Groups create synergies between our exciting and diverse research disciplines to make a significant contribution towards understanding and alleviating some of society's major challenges.
Interdisciplinary Research Week 2014 (IdRW)
IdR week took place from Sunday 23rd to Thursday 27th March 2014. Interviews with some of our speakers are now available to view.

The Interdisciplinary blog at Southampton brings you the very latest news, discussions and opportunities in cross-disciplinary research at the University of Southampton.
Early career researchers from across the University of Southampton are working with each interdisciplinary group (USRGs & Institutes) to help facilitate and promote interdisciplinary research excellence.
The aim of the Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series is to bring together a wide range of people from across the university to gain a deeper understanding of interdisciplinary research and how this approach provides a significant contribution towards advancing our understanding of today's pressing global challenges.
