Season’s greetings as we look forward to research in 2021

December 18th, 2020

Update from Professor Dame Jessica Corner

As 2020 draws to a close, I wonder if any year has prompted so much time for reflection on what we truly value, and whether a new year has carried so many hopes.

I am also sure that our festive break has seldom been as welcome or richly deserved.

My heartfelt thanks to all of you.

On Tuesday, in the last online town hall for researchers in 2020, Professor Zoe Wilson summed up your contribution perfectly: thanks to your enthusiasm, dedication and resilience we have stayed the course, continuing to deliver research in the most challenging of circumstances and remaining focused on the road ahead.

Please take a few moments to watch this video, as Zoe and fellow Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellors for Research and Knowledge Exchange from each of our faculties reflect on 2020 and look ahead to 2021.
