Our research culture is ambitious, inclusive and supportive. Our focus is on the continuous enhancement of the quality, scope and capacity of our research activities, in particular, the development and evidence-based achievements of our research staff and students.

Our vision is to inspire today’s brightest researchers to make a major impact on global society, and to become the leaders of tomorrow in whatever field they pursue.
