Our Three Strategic Objectives
To achieve our mission we will focus on three objectives: to develop a strong collaborative core within our themes, to support experimental, risk-taking activity, and to engage with external policy-makers and end-users.
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.

Experimental, risk-taking activity
The three Eastern Arc universities were founded on radical, interdisciplinary principles. Our strategy will safeguard this spirit, and encourage our staff to be ‘freer, more daring, more experimental.’ Find out what we intend to do, here.
Engagement with external policy-makers and end-users
The three Eastern Arc universities are situated in regions that have historically been open to new ways of thinking and new ways of working, influencing and being influenced by them. We will continue and build on this tradition by engaging meaningfully with external stakeholders. Find out what we intend to do, here.
