The team is responsible for the set-up of new projects from award notification up to the generation of a project account code. This includes the award set-up in Worktribe, as well as guiding PIs through processes including contracts, recruitment, studentships, risk assessments, procurement of equipment, ethical and governance approval, and due diligence procedures.
The team also aims to provide support to researchers who have encountered serious delays or disruptions as a result of internal administrative requirements. Where input is needed from multiple professional services teams, the Grant Set-up and Support team can help to co-ordinate this activity and help to get the project back on track.
Please note the team deals with all new research awards, including transfers from other institutions, but excluding EU, International, Business Engagement and Strategic Project grants. These will usually be dealt with by the existing teams dedicated to these areas. Existing grants are supported by the Research Finance team. See the Useful Links drop-down menu to find out more about these teams.
