Research & Innovation
A new Research Strategy 2007 – 2013 was launched recently which will provide strategic direction for the Institute’s research activity over the next five years. A number of prioritised research areas have been identified in this document. The document has also enhanced the procedures for carrying out research in the Institute and clarified the reporting responsibilities for research. The identification, protection and exploitation of Intellectual Property arising from this research are also key activities addressed in the strategy, as is further development of the Institute’s enterprise development activities.
