In the Spotlight

7th January 2020

At Northumbria our academics are delivering far-reaching research that is making a real impact.

From fighting disease and protecting the planet, to designing future cities and solving global inequality - at Northumbria we are tackling tomorrow's challenges head on.

Our academics use their research to shape the world we live in by reflecting on the past, understanding the present and planning for the future.

Their expertise plays a key role in the global media's coverage of important and current issues which affect us all, and they are often called upon to provide evidence and expert comment.

Here, we shine a spotlight on some of the global appearances Northumbria academics have been involved with recently.
