Strategically investing in research to maximise funding opportunities and enhance our rankings.
We will focus investment in defined areas of strategic research and research training – based on excellence (existing or emerging), performance and growth – aligned with our 10-year Strategic Research Framework.
We will accelerate growth and diversification in sources of external income to support our research mission.
Reputation and renown for the University, as measured through the University’s rankings strategy, will be significantly drawn from a focus on quality, excellence and impact of our research.
Due to extensive overlap in both membership and content between the Focused Investment in Research Program Board and other University committees – including the Research and Research Training Committee (RRTC) and the Research Management Committee (RMC) – it has been decided to suspend regular Program Board meetings for 2023, with Program Board meetings to be called only for matters that cannot readily be discussed in one of these other forums.
