Our Research Impact


At the University of Cumbria, we aim to produce research outputs, or undertake knowledge exchange programmes, that generate positive impacts on people, communities, businesses, and organisations.  We do this by enabling our researchers to be embedded in industry, practice, and the professions, which, in turn, allows research findings to be rapidly applied into real world settings.

Below, we provide examples of where our research has delivered this benefit to society. These examples have been drawn from the impact case studies submitted to the Research Excellence Framework 2021.

Allied Health Professions

Geography & Environmental Sciences
