Internal Steering Committee

Academic Deans and Directors (or their delegates) formed a Steering Committee to provide diverse external perspectives on the planning process and the draft Research Strategy.

This group provided leadership for discussions within their faculties and schools, as did the heads at the Grenfell Campus and the Marine Institute. The initial input was rolled up to identify emerging research themes and opportunities, as well as areas where improvements are required in the general support of research.
