As our population grows, so do our demands on the planet. At Harper Adams, our research is responding to the biggest challenges that this presents.
We've created an environment where students, staff and industry work together on research with real-world impact. We're improving animal welfare, tackling food scarcity, and developing new farming technologies.
In 2014, the Research Excellence Framework results saw all of our work considered of international quality, and more than half world leading or internationally excellent. Before that, in 2006, we became the only specialist institution in the sector able to award our own degrees by research.
Our research centres and academic networks bring together dedicated staff and facilities, academics from across disciplines, students, and the industry. Based around some of the biggest challenges that face agriculture today, the work they produce is shaping professional practice, government policy and the application of new technologies.
Harper Adams University is internationally recognised for the quality of its research, as evidenced by the Research Excellence Framework 2014. In order to maintain and uphold the high standards of our research, we continue to undertake initiatives to ensure that integrity, ethics and excellence are at the core of our research activities and fully embedded in our research culture.
