THIRD MISSION

Third Mission complements the mission of teaching and the mission of research.

Third Mission supports the structures, processes and engagement between universities and the wider community.

Third Mission activities of HEIs seek to generate, apply and use knowledge and other HEIs capabilities outside academic environments.

The complexity of this issue reflects the richness of the bonds linking HEIs to the society at large.

(Adapted from the Final Report for Russell Group of Universities, 2002)
