Creating (C3B)

Invest in developing strong academically-led international collaborative partnerships and create a culture in which they are valued.


Using Fusion as the primary driver we will proactively seek out and develop institutional partnerships within a series of target global regions and countries moving from a School–based to a proactive institutional approach. The aim of these partnerships will be active transnational collaboration around: high impact research, pedagogic innovation, doctoral training, opportunities for educational provision and practice development, student mobility/recruitment and student/staff exchange.

We will strengthen the partnerships team within SAS to assist with horizon scanning and relationship building supported by a substantial fund to facilitate academic travel and exchange to build lasting partnerships, and we will work increasingly as a partner of choice with the British Council.

We will support international mobility of staff and students through international travel grants and financial support to participate in exchange programmes.

We will bid for and secure funding with other research centres across the world to invest in people and infrastructure to grow our research and pedagogic innovation base.
