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 growth of cross-faculty communities by the Vice-Provost (Research and Enterprise), 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.
If you are interested in seeking College recognition please contact Mark Bambury in the first instance.
