Research in action
We have a distinguished history in research, innovation and enterprise stretching back over 180 years, with no fewer than 25 Nobel Laureates among our current and former staff and students. From research that led to the splitting of the atom to the development of the world's first modern computer, our University has seen a number of major scientific advances. Today, the results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise confirm that The University of Manchester, compared with other leading universities, is still a genuine international research powerhouse.
The encouragement of enterprise is a critical part of our culture, and the commercialisation and exploitation of our intellectual property is a fundamental part of our activities. In the last ten years alone we've launched more than 100 spin-out companies, with more than £150m being raised through those companies.
