2020–2025 Research & Innovation Strategy
Creating knowledge for a better world
The University’s Research & Innovation Strategy is driven by the transformative agenda of the UOW Strategic Plan 2020-2025. It supports the achievement of all three goals in the UOW Strategic Plan, with a particular focus on Goal 2 “Creating knowledge for a better world”. Specifically, our vision for research and innovation at UOW is to be “recognised globally for delivering impactful research that drives positive change”.
The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) underpinning the Agenda provide a shared framework to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges – “end poverty, foster peace, safeguard the rights and dignity of all people, and protect the planet”. The UN SDGs are embedded throughout our 2020 - 2025 Research & Innovation Strategy.
Strategic research objectives and performance targets through to 2025 will be achieved through our Research and Innovation Division (RAID) triple bottom line priorities of: performance, people and planet.
The 2020 - 2025 Research & Innovation Strategy outlines our aspirations to grow and shape our impact through shared objectives, priorities and values that are people-focused, and inclusive.
