March 24, 2014

Memorial University has unveiled a new draft Strategic Research Intensity Plan 2014-2020 that aims to double the university’s “scholarly output” by 2020. The plan, which aligns with the university’s 2012 Research Strategy Framework, also includes the goal to increase MUN’s master's and doctoral graduates by 100% over the same period. The document identifies 12 recommendations to support these goals, which include creating a comprehensive environment for supporting faculty, promoting and supporting research opportunities for students, and improving access to appropriate quality teaching, laboratories and office space. MUN also plans to advocate for new provincial research funds in the health sciences and the arts, humanities and social sciences. MUN News Release
