KMi's development team recently helped to launch the Open University’s new website for the Health & Wellbeing Priority Research Area. This priority research area brings together the impressive expertise of Open University researchers with their extensive network of local, national and international partners and collaborators across government, industry, policy, practice and the wider academic field.

Research in health and wellbeing is strategically important within all of the University’s Faculties, cutting across various disciplines including healthcare management, ageing studies, reproductive and sexual rights, assistive technologies, patient data management, mental health and biological health sciences.  The scope of University expertise ranges from the science underpinning health and disease through to the medical humanities.

The Open University is committed to working towards social justice specialising in participative and inclusive research methods with marginalised and vulnerable communities. In the latest UK research assessment exercise (Research Excellence Framework, 2014), nearly three quarters (72%) of the OU’s research was assessed as world-leading or internationally excellent.
