Research impact and public engagement

Driven by the expertise of Teesside University's community of academics, our research aims to have a positive impact on the economic, social and cultural success of students, partners and the communities we serve.

From shaping global public health policies on obesity, physical activity and jet lag, to increasing cultural engagement, transforming the digital capabilities of the construction sector and tackling organised crime, our research addresses some of the most complex issues facing the world around us.

But we don't do any of this alone. Our researchers partner and collaborate with businesses, charities, local and national governments and members of the public, ensuring that all our work has relevance and value beyond the university - whether that's locally, nationally or on a global scale.

Our approach to research impact is underpinned be the Teesside University Impact Framework that outlines the values and behaviours, capabilities and competencies, and mechanisms for advancing research impact, ensuring we maximise the potential of our research and the benefits of research to our communities and stakeholders.
