A Strong Collaborative Core within our Themes

The four themes are at the heart of our strategy. World-leading research is already taking place within them, and fruitful collaborations exist across the three universities. We want to build on these to develop a strong and robust base from which to address the challenges we face in developing a sustainable, peaceful and equitable future.

To do so, we will:

  • Work with our associate and deputy deans to map our strengths within the themes, and identify the potential links between them.
  • Scope our regional strengths and our global needs to identify particular foci for our work.
  • Provide a framework of strategic support for these areas, which will be led by academic champions with the resource necessary to nurture projects and facilitate collaborations.
  • Build a platform and an agreement by which we can share high-value equipment, databases, collections and other resources.
