The Way Forward 2018-23 is currently undergoing a strategic review. These pages will be updated in the autumn.
We define innovation as working in partnership to turn ideas into new products, processes, services and/or policy developments that add economic and/or social value.
We will be known as the home of innovation, with a thriving innovation culture and the aim to excel in connecting business, government and society with our academics and our students. We will champion knowledge exchange with impact.
Building on the previous strategy
The Cardiff Innovation System, launched in October 2014, is our innovation roadmap. It puts innovation at the heart of the University and promotes an ethos of entrepreneurship and collaboration.
In order to underpin its future success, we are developing innovation-focussed partnerships with key stakeholders from industry, public and third sectors, involving the creative industries, public services, healthcare, and leading-edge technology.
