Collaborations in Lifelong Health
The University of Surrey maintains close links with a wide variety of health partners and public groups to ensure our activities are driven by real-world challenges and can have the maximum impact for our local community as well as the wider global population.
Our health is global

Our rich and diverse international partnerships are often a result of individual connections. The University supports and encourages the formation of such connections with partnership engagements such as the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) which includes UGPN Joint PhD studentship arrangements.
Health service users and the general public
At the University of Surrey we value input from health service users and the general public and have a number of public engagement groups and activities to ensure we can discuss our work with them. For example, the School of Health Sciences' Service User and Carer Involvement group (SUCI) and the Surrey Healthy Ageing Research Partnership (SHARP).
Kent, Surrey and Sussex NIHR Applied Research Collaboration
We are part of the Kent, Surrey and Sussex NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC-KSS), and lead in the area of digital health. We are a core partner of the Surrey Heartlands Health Tech Accelerator (HTA), providing key expertise in engineering and testing of digital health in order to accelerate the adoption of technology into health service provision.
