Accelerate discovery through a culture of scientific excellence 

Priority objective 1


Research is a creative endeavour, driven by the vision and insight of exceptional people in an inclusive culture where diverse talent can thrive.

We will continue to recruit outstanding researchers supported by excellent technical staff. We will emphasise new and interdisciplinary approaches, set high research standards and maintain them through rigorous review.

We will provide high-quality training and mentoring to help our researchers to develop their careers and capabilities as future research leaders. We aim to lead the way in building an environment of equality, diversity and inclusion, and to support wider progress in the research community.

We will encourage wide-ranging scientific interactions and promote robust scientific discussion, building an open and permeable culture that brings together different disciplines and perspectives, and fosters the free exchange of ideas.
