Research & innovation initiatives
The aim of the Research and Innovation portfolio is to produce research excellence in all academic fields at the university and across all six colleges: Economic and Management Sciences; Law; Human Sciences; Education; Engineering, Science and Technology; and Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. Various initiatives have been embarked upon to support this aim.
