Research centres, groups and units

London Met is home to important centres of research, research groups and units.

Centres of research provide a place for staff to undertake innovative, relevant, evidence-based research, as well as offering consultancy and training. They also provide an environment for academic staff and research students with related research interests to share their ideas and expertise, organise joint activities and develop research projects and funding bids.

Our centres promote high-quality research and develop national and international networks.

Research groups and units are smaller collectives, which may have a set objective, such as a particular project, event or partnership over a shorter time-frame.

All these initatives actively encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and our postgraduate research students also get involved, further strengthening the partnership between staff and students.
