Research - Oxford College of Business Sri Lanka


Research institutes, centres and beacons


Our research combine disciplines and capabilities to address major environmental and societal challenges. Through these we find innovative solutions for cleaner energy and more sustainable use of resources, enabling life across the globe to thrive.


We contribute research through the Business Management Research Institute (BMRI), Institute of Applied Social Research (IASR) and Institute for Research in Education (iREd) at the University of Bedfordshire. Our research beacons are exemplars of how these interdisciplinary collaborations, cross-sector partnerships and pioneering discoveries benefit the environment, the economy, health, wellbeing and culture on a local, national and international scale.
