There have been many influential achievements by brilliant men and women who have worked at the University of Birmingham since its earliest days. Scientific discoveries, artistic creations and inventions of international significance have taken place here. Some of those responsible have been appropriately honoured with national and international awards including the Nobel Prize.
The Blue Plaques highlight these special achievements and celebrate those who have helped to shape our heritage as a research university. The Blue Plaques are markers which we hope will inspire all who pass by.
