Thought leadership series

Thought leadership no longer resides just within academic circles and exclusive events. It's about openly sharing big ideas that change how people perceive the world.

Researchers at Kingston University are constantly exploring new ideas, questioning the status quo and taking the lead on important research; from world leading art and design to philosophy, health, business and ground-breaking science.

We think it's important to share the great things our researchers are doing. Through the Thought Leadership Series, each week we will publish a research 'snapshot'; providing a glimpse into the exciting and interesting areas of research being undertaken at Kingston.
