Join us as we celebrate the latest achievements of our leading-edge Research Centres and inaugurate the intellectual conscience of LSBU: The Professoriate

Our Professoriate is the intellectual conscience of LSBU. A forum for academic debate and intellectual leadership at LSBU, its members speak with authority on the enhancement of the research, scholarship, teaching and learning, and enterprise cultures of LSBU.

Our Centres serve as externally-facing beacons of leading-edge, timely research with an international reputation for achievement and innovation. Centres work with the Research Groups to enable academics to learn from their peers and support the development of early career researchers.

Our Groups help us to provide a dynamic and inclusive research environment, enabling researchers to cohere around emerging research themes to catalyse new internal research collaborations.

The following points will be discussed.

i) Find out about the latest advances made by our Research Centres
ii) Celebrate the founding of our Professoriate: LSBU's intellectual conscience
iii) Hear about the high-impact innovations of our Research Centres.
