The role of the team is to maximise College Research and Knowledge Transfer activities through identification, development and exploitation of new research and knowledge transfer opportunities, both within the University and through collaborations with external bodies. This is achieved by delivering an effective research support, advisory and management service.

The team is divided into two main functions, one providing the direct interface with Schools in the College (3 staff managing a “cluster” of 3 Schools each), the second function engaged in major pan-College Projects (systems and process development or theme-focussed R&KT, e.g. Energy).
