Swansea University making a difference in the region

Swansea Science Festival

Swansea University has worked with thousands of private, public and voluntary sector organisations of all shapes and sizes to drive economic growth, foster prosperity, enrich the local community and Welsh culture and, contribute to the health and wellbeing of our citizens.

As a research-led University located in one of the most deprived regions within Northern Europe (West Wales and the Valleys), regional economic and social development are a major priority that sees us working on over 30 EU-funded demand-led academic/industry collaborative projects. Valued at over £130m, these are delivering economic and social benefits to Wales right now, driving inward investment, creating new jobs, upskilling workforces and supporting the establishment and growth or new organisations.
