Asia Expertise Guide

The University of Nottingham's Asia Expertise Guide is your guide to the nearly 200 academics whose world-leading research and specialist knowledge is focused on the major challenges and opportunities in Asia.

Our experts, based in the UK as well as on our China and Malaysia campuses, have long standing engagements with practitioners and partners in the region, as well as those agencies and organisations in the UK with interests in Asia.

These experts, working within the University of Nottingham's Asia Research Institute on the UK campus and the Institutes of Asia and Pacific Studies in Malaysia and China, have informed policy and contributed to ground-breaking research in many areas.

These include research on Smart Cities, Sustainable Environments, Identity and Rights, Governance and Policy, Poverty Alleviation, Elections, Future Foods, Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Regional Connectivity. This includes interdisciplinary research on the Belt and Road Initiative and regional responses to China’s strategy. We also have experts on business and industry in Asia.

All of those featured in this guide are interested in working with policymakers, with the media, with industry and with other researchers on developing opportunities and aim to increase dialogue with, and to make an impact on, important debates within the region. Please do reach out and get in touch.

In this guide are details of how you can work with the University of Nottingham, including brokerage services like the Institute for Policy and Engagement, the Asia Business Centre and the university's Media Team.
