MUN launches new research strategy, “League of Extraordinary Researchers”

June 20, 2012

Memorial University has released a new research strategy framework that sets the vision, mission and guiding principles for research at MUN. The document also lists goals for the institution, which include: attracting and retaining researchers; creating an environment that supports research excellence; engaging with collaborators locally, nationally and internationally; and supporting applied research in strategic areas. The framework was guided by feedback from 2,000 individuals and 100 consultation sessions within the university and around Newfoundland. The framework also reaffirms MUN’s “special obligation” to the citizens of Newfoundland and Labrador. The research framework is illustrated in "The League of Extraordinary Researchers", a graphic novel. MUN News Release | MUN Research Strategy | "The League of Extraordinary Researchers"
