Goal Two: Deliver world-class research


Excellence in all of our disciplines and a leader in interdisciplinary research.

Warwick has a reputation for excellence. But a world-class institution has to continue to strive for excellence, in all disciplines. We’re committed to doing this, ensuring that our research makes a distinctive, competitive impact on the world.

Impressive though our growth has been over the past fifty years, we’re still smaller than most of our world-class competitors, particularly in the sciences and medicine. Achieving the required growth will call for bold and creative steps in these areas, cutting across disciplinary boundaries, both intellectually and institutionally. In pursuing ever greater forward momentum, we must also identify sustainable ways to enhance our Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
