Welcome to the University of Hertfordshire Research Blog

This blog is a snapshot of some of our research and shares the views of our researchers on global developments.

Our research is innovative, progressive and relevant to the needs of industry and society and in the latest Research Assessment Exercise over eighty-five percent was internationally recognised including forty-five percent as either world-leading and internationally excellent.

It is carried out across three Research Institutes:

  • Health and Human Sciences
  • Science and Technology
  • Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities
  • Our Centre for Astrophysics Research is one of the largest astronomy groups in the UK and is developing its international standing in key areas of astronomy research;
  • Our researchers are world leaders in the development of robots as social companions and in the use of robots to help children with autism and other disabilities to develop social skills.
  • We work with industry to reengineer business processes to reduce business costs and improve efficiency.
  • World-leading researchers in the Health and Human Sciences Research Institute (HHSRI) conduct research into new means of drug delivery and ways to enhance patient safety, which is being rolled out across Europe.
