Excellence Initiative

Groups

As part of the Excellence Initiative, a number of groups have been established.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are set up within Faculties or across Faculties and their main purpose is to bring people in similar roles together. Partnership Groups (PGs) are set up with central Professional Services Departments. Finally, Working Groups (WGs) can be formed to address particular topics.
