* Identify Sustainability as a key area of research at DCU and work to provide the necessary supports to increase the number of researchers working in this area and the level of research income 

* Foster and support researchers to address sustainability issues through DCU engagement in national and international sustainability-focused networks such as:

  • the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU) 

* Investigate the scale and focus (such as SDG Thematic Areas) of sustainability-related research activity ongoing across the DCU research community 

* Continue to identify potential funding instruments that address sustainability challenges and bring these to the attention of relevant researchers
