■GMIT will continue to develop as a regional organisation with an international focus committed to the personal and professional enrichment of its students, the needs of its region, national priorities and global opportunities;
■GMIT will both shape and respond to the perspectives and expectations of its stakeholders and will work in collaboration with them to meet their needs;
■GMIT will be an organisation characterised by its flexibility, creativity, responsiveness and a capacity to adapt.

We see our future as a regional resource in the promotion of regional economic and social growth. We look outwards and seek to respond to the needs of our region through our programmes of applied research and development, the establishment of a regional innovation hub, support for entrepreneurship and the provision of relevant and current professional development for the workforce.

To achieve these missions, Research, Development and Innovation has been selected as one of the Institute's five strategic pillars.

The Office of Research, Development & Innovation supports the development and delivery of the Institute's Research Strategy. We manage all aspects of externally funded research at the Institute, as well as recording profiles of research groups and centres (including areas of expertise, published work, consultancy work and funding awards). We are also responsible for the development of research alliances with industry and other organisations, in addition to the commercialisation of research and the management of our Innovation in Business Centres (IiBCs) in Galway and Mayo.
