Research That Matters

The University of Gibraltar has a strong commitment to producing research that builds on research strengths and local capacity, attracts funding and is recognised for its international significance and impact. We believe that quality research and its proper application can have a lasting and significant positive effect on the world we live in. This includes investigative work of direct relevance to current societal needs, including public and voluntary, as well as the commercial and industry sectors.
