Our Mission Statement and Background

To enhance the opportunities available to the public sector and to ensure the best citizen outcomes through research and the application of academic theory in practice.

Nebula Research is the culmination of years of academic excellence and pioneering research. The organisation is the brainchild of Prof Sanjeev Gupta and Prof Sebastian Fuller. As two of the most well-respected research specialists in their respective fields, Sanjeev and Sebastian first envisaged establishing a ground-breaking research group while they studied for their respective advanced degrees. Sanjeev published his first paper on Patient 2.0 Empowerment in 2008. From this date, he has expanded his area of research to include Healthcare, Technology and Education. Sebastian has published many papers across the globe, in languages including English, Japanese, Croatian, and Polish. He has gone on to specialise in research in Education and Special Needs. As recognition of his achievements in research and academia has received the prestigious Verdienst medaille von niederfellabrunn in niederösterreich for his services to education.

Through their dedication to research and the application of academic theory into practice for the betterment of citizens worldwide, Sanjeev and Sebastian have been fortunate enough to work with some of the leading experts in their fields. Over the years these professional relationships strengthened and gradually, a team of the most well-rounded and diverse research specialists was assembled.

Through the expertise of the rapidly growing team, it became possible to take this research group and formalise it into an organisation that develops and delivers high quality research by fostering ideas into realisation to increase the total sum of knowledge for all. Nebula Research has built strong working relationships with some of the top universities around the world, facilitating a programme whereby the next generation of elite researchers support the team of current specialists.
