Staff support and resources

We work closely with academic staff within the schools and the cross-disciplinary Research Institutes in our three locations, Glasgow, London and New York, to attract major grants, further develop collaborations and partnerships with research organisations, and work with end-users in the public and private sectors.  We provide support for the pre-award research process, including project costs for applications, assistance in the drafting and provision of collaboration agreements for projects, liaison with partner institutions on costings, electronic submission of research applications and all other aspects of research applications.
