Interdisciplinary Research Excellence

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.

About us
