Our Research Strategy

Our research strategy describes in detail the strategic direction and ambitions of our research programme to develop and strengthen our research portfolio in the coming years.

Key priorities for achieving our vision are to increase grant applications in collaboration with academic partners that will in turn increase our income, strengthen collaborations, and raise our research portfolio.  We will also prioritise the creation of joint appointments with University of York and the creation of our first academic department.
