We will enhance our research excellence by developing and extending our critical mass areas of research, 以战略投资为基础.

We will establish pan-university research institutes in people-centred artificial intelligence and sustainability which will bring together diverse groups of researchers looking to solve global challenges and complex problems. The institutes will be a vehicle for external collaboration which will create a globally-visible footprint and reputation.

研究 across the University will also be supported by the development of a university-wide data governance structure and master plan.

We will ensure our teaching and research is synergistic, recognise the coupling of teaching and research in all that we do and engage all our researchers in teaching through culture and practice.

We will ensure our recruitment and promotion processes reflect the duality of our mission, and we will develop opportunities for students to join research centres, and for postgraduate researchers to develop teaching practice.

Strengthen our support and infrastructure for our researchers

We will improve support for our research activities by establishing better and more researcher-centric support systems.

Digital enablement will be driven through implementation of a digital research information system supported by a researcher one-stop shop approach to information and signposting.

We will also ensure inclusive mentoring and career development schemes are in place to support our research staff and postgraduate researchers through different stages of their career.

扩大创新以增加社会影响
