Research & Enterprise contacts

Research and Enterprise is organised into two teams.

Research and Business Development (RBD) / Research Impact

Academic colleagues should phone or email their RBD / Impact contact (see below) to discuss any aspect of developing their research funding, impact or commercial activities (licensing, consultancy, and spin-outs). Your RBD contact will also be able to arrange operational support, such as new grant setup as well as detailed grant application guidance, costing, intellectual property and contract advice and services. We particularly encourage contact from new academic members of staff and early career researchers. The Research and Business Development team also works closely with commercial partners, investors and other parties interested in licensing intellectual property or commissioning consultancy or research.

The two Impact Managers support academics make an impact beyond academia with their research - past, present and future. They help build communities of interest around research topics and with faculties, R&E and other professional services teams, they support information sharing, learning and skills in relation to impact, college-wide. The Impact Managers also advise the faculties and departments on REF2020 case studies and review, as appropriate, the Pathways to Impact sections of funding applications.

Research Services

The Research Services team is headed by Craig Bryce and provides operational grant setup and grant application support, guidance, costing as well as intellectual property and contracts advice and services.

Research Services also manages our main research systems, PURE (our research information system) and pFACT (our research costing and authorisation system). Research Services are also managing the administrative support for REF2020. With colleagues from IT and the Library Service, we are also helping to design and put into place a new research data service - Research Data Management - advice and support .

If you have just been awarded a grant and would like some help setting up the grant, contact Gemma Vart our Research Grant Setup and REF Manager.
