New strategies for research and doctoral education programmes
There are several benefits to developing these strategies. The research groups that are part of a priority area have developed a strategy together and identified how the research groups together will contribute to societal development. These strategies form the basis for a systematic approach to develop the research areas, as well as showing how research strategies and the university's goals and strategies support each other. At the same time, they can be used as a basis for local evaluations of each area's research, which are carried out every six years.
Support for long-term development
These strategies show the Governing Board of the University of Borås how the direct government funding received for research is and will be used.
“The board distributes half of the funding directly to these priority areas and has shown great interest in both ongoing and planned research. These strategies are very important for the long-term development of the research and doctoral education programmes in our priority areas,” said Pro-Vice-Chancellor Kim Bolton.
Strategies for research and doctoral education programmes within the university's priority areas are drawn up according to a specific template with the following headings:
- Research environment
- Relevance and impact of research
- Collaboration and external engagement
- Exchange between education and research
- Development and strategy
The university's research quality assurance system will be reviewed by the Swedish Higher Education Authority.
