Bringing together our enterprise and research support teams

Posted by rmt22 at Jun 18, 2015 04:25 PM |
Our university is proud of being research intensive and has a strong record of growth in research income over the last five years.

As we are developing our new strategic plan we are establishing a strong ambition to grow beyond the current level of research income. The University Leadership Team has agreed to invest in our research development capacity to help deliver a step-change in research income. There will also be further investment in the research pre and post-award support teams.

The investments in the research development team will be aligned very closely with our existing enterprise development teams and therefore we have decided to bring together our Research Support Office and Enterprise and Business Development Office (EBDO) into a new Division of Research and Enterprise. The team will work closely with the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Enterprise.

We will now be looking to appoint a Head of Division and Director of Research and Enterprise, who will be supported by a Deputy Head of Division and Director of Research and Enterprise Support. These will be internal appointments.
