Aalborg University’s new strategy, "Knowledge for the world", was approved by the University Board in October 2015. The strategy process was divided into four phases, and throughout the process staff, students and other resource personnel were involved.
In September 2015, the Executive Management appointed five action plan groups; these were given the task of translating the overall initiatives outlined in the strategy into concrete action plans which are to support the implementation of the strategy. The Executive Management requested for this process to be propelled by and deeply rooted in the overall management system. The action plan groups include members from across the University and are all headed by members of the Executive Management.
