Our vision for science


We aim to become the UK’s leading university for future-facing science education and a global powerhouse in cross-disciplinary scientific research. We are advancing connections across the sciences to deliver teaching and research that inspires solutions to complex global issues. By nurturing, attracting and bringing together talent working at the interface of fundamental and applied science, we are shaping an ethos of discovery rooted in interdisciplinary thinking.

Major investment to supercharge science

King's £45.5 million pound investment in talent, education, research and state-of-the-art facilities is advancing knowledge, strengthening skills and powering exploration across the sciences. We are creating the conditions needed to stimulate new innovation by investing in people, infrastructure and research. This transformative investment will deepen our academic excellence as we launch boundary-breaking research centres that connect scientific disciplines.

King's supercharges science with major investment in talent, education and research

Strengthening science talent


A major priority is investing in and recruiting new research staff to strengthen areas of excellence, expand into new strategic research areas and provide a bridge between health and science research. This will be underpinned by professional services staff recruitment to provide technical services, research development and education programme management. As we recruit new talent, we are focused on enhancing our staff diversity, whilst also recruiting people who exemplify our interdisciplinary objectives.

Enhancing our facilities

Significant investment across our estate will create technologically advanced science research and teaching spaces. This will be delivered at pace by transforming under-used areas to enable rapid expansion across our central London estate.
