Our new research strategy – invitation to find out more

December 14th, 2021

The university has published a new strategy for research. Many thanks to colleagues from across our campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia who took part in a series of consultations that helped shape our vision for research for 2022-27.

You are now invited to a series of virtual town halls in January 2022, where Professor Dame Jessica Corner, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, will update colleagues on our research strategy for the next five years, and discuss how you can contribute to its implementation.

Register for research town hall

We encourage our whole community – colleagues from all job families as well as researchers and staff who support research – to join this latest series of consultation events.

Dame Jessica said: “In the coming months, we will continue to involve you in delivery of our renewed strategy for research.

“We are strengthening our commitment to delivering research of the highest quality and better preparing for challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing policy and funding landscape.

At the heart of this strategy is our commitment to building an inclusive, supportive, and truly transdisciplinary research culture.”

Each of the five town halls, to be conducted via Microsoft teams, will be hosted by one of our faculties. If you are unable to attend your own faculty’s event, please feel free to attend one of the other sessions – colleagues from Professional Services are invited to attend the town hall that suits you best.
