Economic Recovery Prospectus

Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an unparalleled global health and economic crisis. The impact of this is ongoing and countries across the world now face the difficult prospect of restarting their economies.

In response to this, Heriot-Watt University have developed a Prospectus for recovery and growth, illustrating our dedication to supporting the global recovery efforts in relation to Covid-19. As we rebuild, Heriot-Watt University aims to maximise opportunities for innovation, solve significant issues and drive impactful socio economic benefits.

Reimagining our future

Commitments

Our Prospectus sets out our commitments to an inclusive and sustainable recovery in all of our locations. We will evolve our organisation through new initiatives and partnerships, refocusing our research agenda, prioritising commercialisation and delivering new educational programmes that help people develop the skills and expertise they need to prosper.

Actions

The challenges and opportunities we face as a society post Covid-19 will require a wide range of responses and a strong collaborative approach. We are driven by pragmatic, solution-focused approaches, which are distinctly global. Building networks to support collaboration and seeking opportunities to tackle the needs of industry and society.
