Strategic Implementation – Research and Knowledge Exchange
Our purpose in Research and Knowledge Exchange is to create new knowledge which we and others put into action to create an impact on global challenges.
WE DO THIS BY:
— Prioritising practice in how we generate and apply new knowledge, using the whole spectrum of experimental and established methods and designing for maximum impact
— Being outstandingly inclusive and non-hierarchical in working with researchers, practitioners, ‘end users’ and research participants
— Working to the highest standards of academic rigour and integrity, to ensure trust in our research and knowledge exchange
— Pursuing excellence by being part of impactful coalitions with practice and academia to help shape the direction of knowledge-producing communities
— Prioritising the global challenges encompassed in our integrating themes
— Working with an inter-disciplinary and collaborative approach, locally, nationally and internationally and partnering with individuals, organisations, businesses and community groups
— Developing a distinctive, inclusive and sustainable research culture which fosters the skills, methods and ethos of practice-oriented, inter-disciplinary research and knowledge exchange
— Connecting learning, discovery and innovation to ensure pedagogy and research are mutually reinforcing and bind our learning community together.
