Research Strategy update: thank you for sharing your insights
A key pillar of the University’s Research Strategy is empowering and engaging with all colleagues dedicated to the delivery of our world-leading discoveries.
To further support this, each of the University’s five faculties invited colleagues a series of Research Strategy briefings.
Hosted by Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellors (AVPCs) for Research and Knowledge Exchange, these nine briefings took place in January and February and gave faculties to review the objectives and the progress of the University’s Research Strategy. The AVPCs then facilitated a discussion around the issues, needs and challenges going forward, aligned with implementation of the new University Strategy and against the background of a rapidly changing research environment.
Professor Zoe Wilson, the Faculty of Science’s APVC for Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “These briefings were not only a great opportunity to update on the progress of the University’s Research Strategy, but also to have a two-way conversation with our colleagues and listen to their concerns and suggestions.
Ensuring our Research Strategy is agile and inclusive
“We’ve noted the issues raised and will be back in touch with colleagues setting out detailed responses to your thoughts and suggestions. Your comments will help inform the continuing development of the University’s Research Strategy, ensuring it is agile and inclusive, while making sure colleagues feel more informed and involved in our research direction.”
“Thank you so much to all who attended and shared their thoughtful insights with faculty colleagues and our wider research community.”
