In the last round of assessment for research excellence
in the UK (RAE 2008), the
University of Wolverhampton was recognised as one of the
leading new universities in the West Midlands for
Particular research strengths that were recognised included
Library and Information Management (i.e
.advanced analysis of web content and traffic), Computational Linguistics (ie natural language
processing, advanced computer language analysis etc) and Art and Design, and Built Environment.
Receiving almost £2 million in funding as an
acknowledgement of this fact, we have continued to invest
heavily in building links with business that compliment the
activity carried out by our established research institutes and
centres. We believe our research has an important role to play
in the economic future and regeneration of the region.
We are now making preparations for the REF 2014 and are aiming
for even more of our research to be classed as
"world-leading" - the highest accolade.
