Research Development

The Research Development team is responsible for advising on the preparation of all applications for research funding (including those funded or led by commercial organisations), ensuring that they meet the funders’ criteria and are properly costed and priced, for approving applications, and for checking, re-negotiating, and accepting awards. The team is also responsible for supporting the University’s consultancy engagement, including pricing, offers of service, and internal approvals.

The Research Development Officers work closely with the schools to develop strategies to take maximum advantage of funding opportunities and are each responsible for particular schools and for acting as the main external contact with particular funding agencies.
