About us

The aims of The Sheffield Methods Institute

Here at the SMI we want to facilitate the production of world class research methodologies by providing high quality training in research methods starting at undergraduate level through to academic partners like the White Rose Doctoral Training Centre.

By forging lasting partnerships with policy makers and other organisations, we hope to transform the research environment outside of academia by training and promoting research innovation to businesses and industry partners.
