Cardiff’s University is committed to be a world-leading, research-led university where interdisciplinary themes facilitate research and teaching excellence. Bridging Disciplines
Did you know?
- In 2010 Cardiff successfully gained over £15M on over 50 interdisciplinary grants
- EPSRC's Cross disciplinary Interfaces Programme allocates £40M to multidisciplinary research projects
The first stage of our £4M investment in an additional 72 full RCUK-rate scholarships has met with a very strong response from high-quality candidates across a wide-range of disciplines.
Big Ideas for the Future is a new report from Research Councils UK (RCUK) and Universities UK that explores the excellent research taking place in UK higher education at the moment and what it will mean for us in 20 years time.
