Post-Award Research support

The Research Support Group provides a range of post-award support services to the university research community.

Research Grant Set-up and Support

The Research Grant Set-up and Support Team is a central team that oversees the set-up of all research awards at the university. The team sets up new research awards, can help PIs troubleshoot any issues and provides advice on all aspects of project set-up.

Research Finance

The Research Finance team are responsible for the administration of externally funded research project accounts once an award has been received and accepted by the University, with a responsibility for managing the university’s £800m portfolio of research project accounts in a way that maximises income to the university and complies with internal accounting policies and funder terms and conditions.

Research Project Reporting for Principal Investigators

Core Systems provides Principal Investigators with a number of reports containing the important financial information they need to manage expenditure on their research projects. In response to staff feedback we have produced a selection of short videos to show Principal Investigators how to use the reports to get up-to-date budget and expenditure information on their live projects, as well as where to find information on the codes they need to charge purchase requisitions to their projects.
