Professor Neil Crout’s update: supporting excellence in research

January 23rd, 2023

Professor Neil Crout, Interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, welcomes Professor Tom Rodden’s appointment, invites applications to apply for the newly-titled role of Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor for RKE – and highlights progress to improve the day-to-day experience of researchers.

In his latest update, Professor Crout also welcomes the relaunch of the university’s flagship International Research Collaboration Fund. This academic year (2022-23), there will be at least £250,000 available to support international research collaboration and mobility for colleagues across the UK campuses.

The IRCF will particularly welcome applications from colleagues seeking to establish or grow links with world-leading research groups and institutions that will lead to excellent research outputs.

In addition to support for outbound mobility, the IRCF is open to larger grants that support the acceleration of ambitious partnerships with institutions and research groups with an international reputation for excellence in their field. Dedicated funding for Early Career Researcher mobility will also form part of the new scheme.

Further progress in delivery of the research strategy includes securing new research kit, a significant uplift in our High Performance Computing capabilities and work to identifying and reducing the barriers researchers face.

Professor Crout also congratulates Ben Ollivere, Professor of Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery in the School of Medicine, who has been appointed as Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
