Multi-faculty centres and networks
Multidisciplinarity is important for tackling big societal challenges and is an integral part of Imperial’s strategy. Following the development of a framework to support the development of cross-faculty communities by the Vice-Provost (Research and Enterprise), Professor Nick Jennings, multi-faculty initiatives that support multidisciplinary research can apply for formal College endorsement to receive institutional recognition and status of excellence.
Cross-faculty initiatives 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 of Excellence.
The 5th call is now closed, the next call will be announced here.
