Guiding Principles

The Strategic Research Intensity Plan built on the Research Strategy Framework to initiate an historic generational transformation of Memorial University's ability to:

  • Accelerate the production and dissemination of scholarly outcomes, and strengthen its capacity to compete successfully for grants from Canada and abroad;

  • Intensify its ability to supervise graduate master and doctoral candidates, and grow the pool of highly qualified human capital so important for building Newfoundland and Labrador, and Canada;

  • Enhance its capacity to address the research priorities of government, industry, and society at large in Newfoundland and Labrador.
