What is the Impact Factory?


The Impact Factory seeks to deliver innovative high impact solutions to the complex, ‘knotty’ challenges that arise from the sustainability crisis.

The philosophy is to identify the fundamental question arising from a messy situation before attempting to define a solution. This approach ensures the right questions get answered maximising the impact of the solution 

Central to our approach is interdisciplinary collaboration and an embracement of the complexity arising from the collision of science, society and economics and the inevitable resulting contradictions.   

Through the Impact Factory you can explore the complex, unbounded problems that you might face in practice and discover how through imagination and innovation such ‘wicked problems’ can be solved adding real societal impact. This is achieved through individual and group project activity as part of your studies.
