World-class research in the heart of the City

W

elcome to the City University London Research and Enterprise Review 2011. For this snapshot of City’s research and enterprise activities we have selected some of our most innovative and challenging research projects which also have potential for major impact on society at large. This is what City University London is about – our community of academic staff, research staff and doctoral students undertake applied, relevant and cutting-edge research that brings real benefits to industry, business and the community. Our innovative research covers areas as diverse as climate change, healthcare, economic theory and musicology; and in 15 subject areas it is of a quality comparable with the very best in the world, according to the most recent UK Research Assessment Exercise. Many of our enterprise activities have been supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England through the Higher Education Innovation Fund. Building upon this investment, we continue to develop our enterprise offering, especially our consultancy, high-level Continuing Professional Development and the commercialisation of our intellectual property. Our strong ties with the City Livery Companies, the City of London and many private and public sector organisations in the UK and internationally allow us to take the results of our research directly to its users. City University London is ranked among the top 5 per cent of universities in the world by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2010/11. Our vision is to be a leading global University committed to academic excellence, focused on business and the professions, and to be ranked within the top 2 per cent of universities in the world by 2016, when we celebrate our 50th birthday.
