More about BU research We group our research around eight themes, which strive to address important challenges in society today. Ageing & Dementia Worldwide we have an ageing population demographic. As society ages, the number of cases of dementia also increases. BU researchers are using theory and evidence to make a difference to the everyday issues an ageing society faces.

Biodiversity, Environmental Change & Green Economy BU researchers are world leaders in understanding and managing the impact of environmental change. We have specialists working on local, national and international environmental agendas, informing policy at all levels.

Communities, Culture & Conflict Changes in society often bring conflict and violence, raising issues of security, welfare and social protection. BU researchers look at the impacts of change, both in ancient civilisations and today’s world. Our experts also look at the media’s role in cultural and political change.

Creative, Digital & Cognitive Science BU researchers contribute to these fastgrowing sectors of the economy. We are world leaders in computer animation, media production, marketing and communications, media copyright, software systems and artificial intelligence.
