Discover the ways that we support our research staff - personally and professionally
We have more than 240 different research groups at the University of Southampton, all of which engage in cutting-edge research.
A research group (also sometimes called a research centre) is a group of researchers from the same faculty working together on a particular issue or topic. Research groups may be composed of researchers all from the same academic unit/subject or from different subjects within a faculty.
At the University of Southampton we also encourage our research groups to collaborate with each other across disciplines to make the most of our incredible knowledge base of expertise. In this way we hope to stretch boundaries, challenge traditional ways of thinking, and innovate towards finding new solutions to problems.
You will find more information about individual research groups on the relevant faculty and/or academic unit website.
