RO Functional Areas [pdf]

The College’s Research Office provides a central portal for support, information and guidance for our external research funders and internal research and support service communities. We exist to provide expert guidance and services in support of the College’s externally funded research portfolio. Our primary purpose is to champion professional standards and consistency in research administration across the College to ensure that institutional governance responsibilities and obligations are met. We add value as a support service through the provision of specialist advice, development of systems and training, and targeted information and governance policies.

The Research Office is led by Lynne Cox (Director) and is managed through the following six functional areas:

Open Access and Research Data

The Research Office is the institutional champion for Open Access and Research Data Management. We develop strategies to ensure that the College meets funder and regulatory requirements. We work with partners across (and beyond) the College, including the Library and ICT, so that Imperial’s digital infrastructure facilitates the highest standards of research communication. 

Research Services

Faculty Research Services teams provide local support to academic departments. Organisationally, they sit within and report to each Faculty. These teams deliver the operational and transactional activities that support management of the externally funded research portfolio. The College’s Research Office provides the policy and system frameworks within which the Faculty Research Services teams operate.
