Who we are

The GSI academic community comprises individuals and research groups from all colleges and campuses of the University. It is not defined by who is located within a single building now or in the future but rather by those who want to work together to deliver the GSI vision. Our strategic direction is governed by our management board made up of the GSI director, manager and five assistant directors, each responsible for the specific areas of research, education, impact & engagement, health and life sciences and humanities, arts and social sciences. If you would like to affiliate please follow the ‘join our community’ link.
