Research themes

At Edinburgh Napier, our research informs teaching and impacts business and society. Our researchers work across a wide range of areas, finding solutions to today’s most challenging problems.

We have three encompassing themes that provide a strategic context for cross-university activity and interdisciplinary research in areas of strength and external relevance.
