Our Research

After just five years of engagement, the University of Birmingham and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have established over 70 successful faculty-to-faculty links in key academic disciplines.  Research links between the two institutions include such disciplines as Economic and Physical Geography, Railway Engineering, Maths, Psychology, Environmental Genomics, History of Art, American & Canadian Studies, Cultural Heritage and Education.  The BRIDGE partnership recognises the breadth and depth of faculty connections that have flourished over the last five years.
