Research Investment Strategy

Our research base is characterised by some very high quality researchers who are distributed across a number of academic disciplines.

Our aim is to:

  • Build critical mass, foster excellence, exploit new research and knowledge exchange opportunities and increase funding by leveraging our existing strengths in key areas;
  • Stimulate excellence in interdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange with a societal and economic impact by appointing leading or rising researchers, supporting them with postdoctoral researchers and research students;
  • Support the development of researchers, allowing them to be adaptable and flexible in an increasingly diverse and global research environment, by providing mentoring, researcher training and open- access publication support;
  • Develop further strategic collaborations through national and international academic and industrial research and knowledge exchange alliances.
