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.
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.
See the Additional Support section for a range of resources supporting specific aspects of research activity, as well as guidance around Core Systems and Worktribe.
