research and innovation services
Research & Innovation Services (R&IS) is responsible for implementing the University's research & knowledge exchange strategies and supporting the delivery of the University's research, knowledge exchange and commercialisation objectives.
By supporting the work of the Research Planning & Strategy Committee and the Deans of Graduate Studies Committee, and working with College and University senior management, the team ensures the University's policy framework enables and supports the University’s research objectives, whilst complying with the requirements of the University’s funders.
The teams in R&IS contribute to ensuring that researchers are provided with a supportive environment, in which they are encouraged to meet the highest standards of research integrity. The office is also responsible for developing research metrics and gathering data to facilitate the tracking of research and research-related activities.
