What we do

We implement the strategies and policies of the university's Research and Enterprise Committee. Our function is to support the university's research staff in conducting research in accordance with national regulatory frameworks and funding bodies, including:

Research Grants Administration: The team has experience of UK, European and non-European funders and assists researchers with applications from initial proposal, budgeting, submission, post-award management and final report and completion.

Research Excellence Framework: The team co-ordinate the university's submission to national research benchmarking exercises such as the REF.

Promoting Goldsmiths research to funding bodies:  When funding bodies run consultation exercises, the team co-ordinate the university's response on behalf of Goldsmiths.

Researcher Career Development: Researchers are vital to the future of a research-intensive university like Goldsmiths and we aim to provide good career development support for all levels of research staff.

Open Access: Open access recognises the public benefits of free access to publicly-funded research. The Research team in collaboration with colleagues in the Library are leading the implementation and development of open access systems that accord with funders' requirements. Goldsmiths Research Online, GRO, is our publicly accessible repository.

Research Ethics and Integrity: The Research team co-ordinates the work of the university Research Ethics and Integrity Sub-Committee and its broad remit (including assessment of ethical protocols for research projects and management of research staff) with other academic and professional services departments.
