Knowledge Exchange at Sheffield
We define our mission as “the goal of changing the world for better through the power and application of ideas and knowledge”. This process involves partnerships with people and organisations beyond our walls; these partnerships are not one-way, and the insights that we gain from our partners stimulate and enrich the research we do, fuelling innovation and keeping our researchers in touch with the real questions and challenges faced by modern society.
