Research and Innovation support

The Research and Innovation Office plays a leading role in shaping and delivering the University’s research and innovation activities. It provides a high quality, added value and seamless service to academics and researchers across the research development pipeline, and also helps them take the next step to create impact through enterprise.

The Office incorporates a number of different teams that provide support for: developing partnerships and collaborations; identifying and applying for funding; managing projects and assuring compliance with policy; improving the visibility of research outputs; fostering the impact, intellectual property and commercialisation of research; and the nurturing of research leadership skills through training and skills development programmes. The Office also works closely with other Professional Services across the University, notably Legal Services, Registry, Student Services, Finance, HR and the Library.

Reimagining RIO

The University’s Strategy 2030 and the Research and Innovation Core Plan share the strategic aim of being more ambitious in our research and innovation endeavours. To support this ambition, the University launched a transformational change programme - Reimagining RIO.
