Our gradual and careful approach for research as restrictions are lifted

July 30th, 2021

Update from Professor Dame Jessica Corner

We are reviewing our research activities following the lifting of Covid restrictions by the government. This will be a careful and gradual approach, ensuring your wellbeing remains our first priority.

We continue to work very closely with public health officials, and our estates and health and safety teams are liaising with colleagues in schools and faculties, with the aim to be back at full research capacity by the start of the 2021-22 academic session.

While we are all looking forward to further scaling up of research, many of you remain understandably cautious.

Our planning for a gradual return to ‘normal’ working will be coordinated at school and faculty level by assistant pro-vice-chancellors for research and knowledge exchange. This measured approach will ensure your safety and our advances towards recovery are not put at risk.

Key measures and recommendations remain in place. Please see our safety on campus guidance – this is under review but is important to remain aware and follow guidance on hygiene, regular testing and working safely together.
