Welcome to the Suffolk Research Blog

Our research makes a real difference to people’s lives and influences policy and society as well as informing the teaching that we deliver. The blog will showcase news, research events, good practice, and the latest research at the University of Suffolk.

If you would like to contribute or have ideas for the blog, please contact the Suffolk Research Blog Team at research@uos.ac.uk. We warmly welcome research-focused contributions.
