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 by the Vice Provost (Research and Enterprise), Professor Nick Jennings, cross-faculty initiatives that support multidisciplinary research can apply for formal College endorsement to receive institutional recognition and a status of excellence. Calls are now closed and likely to open Autumn 2020.
This framework will apply to all new cross-faculty 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 of Excellence.
