Industry Engagement Priorities
As outlined in the ‘Research that Shapes the Future’ Pillar Plan, the Industry Engagement Priorities (IEPs) act as a conduit to industry, connecting compelling external opportunities with outstanding internal capability, and addressing major societal and technological challenges.
Complementing the University’s fundamental research excellence, and as part of the intellectual ecosystem of the University the IEPs are designed to deepen our relationships with industry, and broaden the skills of our staff and students as they seek to develop, and join, tomorrow’s workforce.
The IEPs, supported by an identified lead and an Industry Advisory Board, are expected to generate opportunities for new industry partnerships, potentially leading to the appointment of additional industry-focused staff and joint appointments in the University, as well as progressing our educational endeavours.
The five Industry Engagement Priorities are
