About us

We are dedicated to creating a collaborative and inspiring environment, bringing together researchers from across all disciplines to deliver ambitious, transformative research that makes a difference to the wider world.

We do this by funding interdisciplinary teams to extend the boundaries of human knowledge. We bring outstanding academics from around the world to the University of Leicester for research collaboration and to enrich our environment. We offer our academics a stimulating and provocative events programme that showcases excellent scholarship and liberates debates.
