London as a living laboratory

Through our research collaborations and partnerships with London's businesses, organisations and agencies we work across disciplines to help London address its challenges and opportunities. 

Research is core to King’s: what we do, what we care about and how we educate. It is how we channel our creativity to further knowledge and understanding, challenge convention and create impact. Across a broad range of disciplines King’s is delivering a distinctive and thriving research portfolio and the university is recognised, in a number of key areas, as the world-leader.

Through collaborations with other universities and with London’s businesses, agencies, institutions, policy makers and practitioners, we ensure that our research is informed by London and that it delivers benefits to the capital and the communities around us.  

Our ambition is to make the world a better place by generating high-quality and high-impact research that, through interdisciplinary collaborations across and beyond King’s, can be readily turned into new solutions for the many and diverse challenges faced in London, across the country and around the globe.
