Impact case studies

In collaboration with academic, governmental, industrial and third sector partners, our researchers undertake a significant amount of genuinely world changing research at the University.

Over 120 unique Leeds case studies were submitted demonstrating how our research is, among others things, achieving global impact, driving down inequalities and addressing social and economic challenges.

Here we showcase a few examples of our solution-orientated research.

These selected case studies represent a brief overview of the breadth and depth of research impact across our faculties that was submitted to REF 2021.
