Abstract 

    World class universities however they are ranked and measured are built on the fundamental excellence of the talent within the organisation, and openness and collaboration of its academic staff with leading international institutions, which lead to the high quality graduates and research outcomes.  In turn, the high quality graduates will become leaders of influence in their careers and professions, making contributions to society as a whole.  Top researchers will generate high quality publications and inventions that will transform industries and change the world.  As a result of the quality graduates and research, the university’s reputation will rise into the world-class as time goes by.  Such is the virtuous cycle of excellence and impact in higher education.


    In this talk, an introduction of higher education and research environment in the UK will be made first, and then the key elements of successful research intensive universities becoming world-class will be highlighted.  Some examples of University of Surrey’s research impact will be used to illustrate how one should go about building an excellence culture for research and high impact partnerships.  The talk will also cover the key attributes for top researchers and how to develop talent in a top university as a holistic leadership issue.
