The University requires resource and structure fit for this Strategic Plan. At a minimum, we have set as a goal a research active academic complement of over 500
within the lifetime of the Plan. REF review proposals may further escalate the urgency of this issue in order to best secure improved outcomes in the next REF
exercise. We will ensure that our organisational structures and resources reflect strategic priorities, are efficient and effective in delivery, and possess, develop or
resource the skills necessary for achievement of our goals. We will maintain an international perspective and reach in attracting and retaining high performing staff.
