We recognise that new technologies, new competitors, new challenges and new expectations are changing our world forever. We need to act bold, be innovative and transform the way we think to create the University of the future and lead the way by building on our greatest strength – our talented staff.

We’ll further develop our partnerships and networks regionally and globally and support enterprise and start-ups.
