Research and Innovation (R&I) Office

What we do

The Research and Innovation Office (formerly the R&D Hub), maintains oversight of hospital based research activity, and works to support and strengthen the research culture on campus.

The R&I Office approves research proposals, and provides research support to staff in a signposting capacity.

The online R&I Research Application From must be filled out and submitted for review before starting any study, and applies to all forms of research.
See link below to R&I Research Application Form and associated Guidance Document.

The R&I Steering Committee have completed work on a 3-year Hospital Research Governance and Support Framework (see link below), which was signed-off on Monday 21st August 2017. The framework document centres around 4 main initial objective areas: Support, Financial Governance, Approval, and Communication / Promotion, with a series of associated work stream action points.
