The strategy is structured around three pillars of activity, underpinned by our work in three foundation areas.
Pillar 1 – provide world-class research degree programmes
We aim to further develop and enhance the quality of the ICR’s research degree programme and student support.
Pillar 2 – teach tomorrow’s leaders today’s discoveries
We aim to provide postgraduate taught degrees that 1) support the rapid translation of scientific advancement into benefits for cancer patients 2) fuel the pipeline of highly skilled researchers working to defeat cancer.
Pillar 3 – partner with our peers and the public
We aim to maintain, forge and develop partnerships that support our education and training goals, and to widen participation in STEM education through promotion of student and staff volunteering, community outreach and public engagement.
Our work in each of these three strategic pillars is reinforced by high standards in each of the following three areas, which we call our foundations:
- Environment and infrastructure
- Quality assurance
- Equality and diversity
