MPLS and MSD are building a new science engagement programme to connect researchers and local communities, so that our research is grounded in local needs, interests and priorities.
Our strategic plan focuses on demonstrating the value of PER, building capacity, particularly by supporting departments, and exploring where we can facilitate effective collaborations across the Division and with other partners.
