Goldsmiths has a world-class reputation for creativity and innovation and a commitment to encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration, and provides researchers with a unique intellectual environment in which to pursue their studies. Whilst benefiting from the wide-ranging resources of the University of London, Goldsmiths also offers all the advantages of a small, campus-based institution. We are a small, research-intensive university, and our consistently excellent performance is reflected in our RAE Rating. The national assessment exercise carried out in 2008 placed us in the top ten universities for the proportion of our research recognised to be ‘world-leading’.
We see applications for research funding from inception, proposal writing, and institutional authorisation, to post-award support and monitoring. International collaborations and European research initiatives are actively supported by staff with specific knowledge and experience of working with institutions across the world.
Among the services the Research Office provides are:
The Research Office works closely with the Enterprise Office to encourage research expertise across the College to connect with business or community interests. If you are an organisation interested in benefiting from Goldsmiths’ research excellence, creativity, and expert know-how, or a Goldsmiths academic interested in Knowledge Transfer and collaboration, then contacting the Enterprise Office is your first step.
Under the management of the Pro-Warden Research and Enterprise, Goldsmiths Research Office administrates the College Research and Enterprise Committee responsible for forming Goldsmiths research policy, multidisciplinary College Research Centres and business links.
