The Initiatives

Building on interdisciplinary research strengths across the University.

The Hallmark Research Initiatives are broader in scale than existing research groups and have a distinctive interdisciplinary emphasis. They are intended to enable the maturing of focused research communities that build on existing strengths across the University, and designed to harness cross-University capabilities with the aim of increasing the impact of our high quality research and opening up new funding opportunities. The Hallmark Research Initiatives are part of the strategic embedding of a Grand Challenges perspective in the University’s research profile.
