About Bridging the Gaps

The Bridging the Gaps Programme is an exciting and innovative project that seeks to effect a fundamental change in the research culture of our University.

The objective of the EPSRC-funded programme was a simple one; to break down discipline boundaries and to embed an inter-disciplinary consciousness across the research community.

Swansea University received the largest single grant of all the university programmes supported, receiving almost £1 million of Research Council funding. Swansea University is the only institution in Wales have received BTG funding. A broad range of research projects have benefited from the funding and endeavour to bridge gaps across disciplines.

It is the University's active vision to transform how we think about working together and growing as a powerful, research-led University. Rarely can the world’s major problems and challenges be solved by any one approach or academic discipline.
