thinking beyond

Research clusters and programmes are enablers for building a research and innovation culture.

The cluster is based on a collection of related research programmes, based on the critical mass in a particular field of research, research outputs, completed qualifications and funding awarded.

Although these clusters build strength in areas of focus, the principle of multi-, inter- and trans-disciplinary research, amongst listed programmes, is strongly supported.
