Concerted action

The Strategy 2018-2021 is the consolidated result of concerted action during the first six months of 2017. During this period, both internal and external stakeholders were consulted extensively to develop a broadly endorsed vision and strategy for the university’s future.

In order to accomplish our mission and implement our vision, we have formulated ambitions for our three primary processes, i.e., education, research, and impact generation, as well as a strategy and objectives for growth, location, culture & governance, and operational excellence.
