Working together is a fundamental element of the SMART Project here at DMU Square Mile. By involving all areas of the University and including academics, research staff and PhD students we are creating a network of communication. Our network of communication is fast becoming the vital tool to connecting the research at De Montfort University with the wider community.


Collaborate with Fellow Researchers
Not only does SMART showcase individual research cases, but the project also offers researchers a platform to connect and engage with experts across all disciplines within the University. If you are an academic, member of research staff or student at De Montfort and would like to collaborate your work with a fellow researcher here at the University, then email Square Mile
and we can help to get your research collaboration started.
