Interdisciplinary discovery: the next step in our ambitious research vision


April 17th, 2019

The University has set out an ambitious programme to build upon the success of our Research Priority Areas (RPAs) and refresh our commitment to interdisciplinary discovery.

RPAs will be replaced by Interdisciplinary Research Clusters (IRCs). These will continue to be managed by Global Research Theme leads and this renewed programme of investment will allow us to further develop our capability to competitively address challenge-led research questions.

The primary focus of the GRT/IRC programme will be to continue to develop, sustain and grow a balanced portfolio of discovery and challenge-led research and impact, typically aligned to the priorities of research councils, charities, and other major funders.

For details of how RPAs can apply to become IRCs, and for information on the process to create a new cluster of interdisciplinary discovery, please visit the Research Exchange blog.
