Knowledge exchange, industry partnerships and innovation are key components of much of the University’s research. To support this growing area, Professor Kerry Kirwan has been appointed as new Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research) for Knowledge Exchange and Partnerships.
On Wednesday 23 October, we held a celebration event for our newly refreshed Global Research Priorities (GRP) programme.
Our GRPs tackle urgent global concerns through interdisciplinary research. They unite researchers from different disciplines to generate real-world impact and help improve the lives of people around the globe.
Addressing urgent global challenges through research lies at the heart of the newly refreshed Global Research Priorities (GRP) programme.
The GRP programme has undergone an extensive review to ensure that global concerns - from energy, to manufacturing, to sustainability - could be tackled effectively through excellent interdisciplinary research. The GRPs harness academic excellence from across the University, with researchers working together to generate real-world and lasting impact.
Using molecular machines to create new drug delivery methods will be the focus of a new Innovative Training Network (ITN) coordinated by Dr Remzi Becer from the Department of Chemistry.
