Research Planning Team


The Research Planning team works with staff across the University to promote and develop the strategic approach to research. Crucial aspects of this are leading the preparation of the University’s submission to the national Research Excellence Framework and implementing the University's research impact strategy.  The team also supports the work of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for R&KT and the University’s Research and Knowledge Transfer Committee and is involved in the strategic oversight of Pure.
