Report

Supporting a UK success story
As part of an Olympic and Paralympic themed Universities Week, this report highlights some of the many ways in which research will help Team GB achieve exceptional results. 

While most attention will be on the results achieved in London this summer, it is inspiring to look at the research taking place in UK universities that will help make London 2012 the best Olympic and Paralympic Games in history. And importantly, the impact of this research will be felt by many more people once the Games are over.
