Multi-faculty centres and networks
Multidisciplinary research is important for tackling big societal challenges and is an integral part of Imperial’s strategy.
To provide a means of formally recognising cross-Faculty initiatives supporting multidisciplinary research alongside our flagship global challenge institutes, a series of calls for proposals will be released by the Vice Provost (Research and Enterprise ) for recognition of multi-Faculty Networks and Centres. The third call for College recognition of multi-Faculty Networks and Centres for research is now open.
A formal College-wide process of endorsement and consistent branding for multi-Faculty Networks and Centres has been created. This framework will apply to all new initiatives. Those that already exist are encouraged to work within the expectations of the framework, including its nomenclature, though this is not necessarily required if a compelling case can be made for keeping existing branding. Please see here for a list of current Networks and Centres.
Please see below for the application form, membership list and guidance documentation for this call.
