The Times Higher Leadership and Management Awards 2010 were designed to celebrate the leadership, management, financial and business skills of the Higher Education Sector whilst showcasing innovation, teamwork and commercial expertise of UK higher education institutions. This year, the University of Greenwich was awarded 'Outstanding International Strategy' award, with NRI receiving a specific mention in the submission detailing our 22 researchers working on 19 projects in India, focusing principally on agriculture and sustainable development.
A member of the judging panel said:
Greenwich fulfilled all the judging criteria in what was a strong field. What distinguished Greenwich was the integrated nature of its internationalisation strategy... it also demonstrated the value of focusing on a specific market — India — and developing a holistic approach involving close institutional partnerships.
