May 30th, 2023

Update from Professor Sam Kingman, Interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange. 

My latest update includes news of initiatives supporting the funding, delivery and communication of our research. 

UKRI’s new research funding service: guidance and FAQs

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is introducing a new service aiming to reduce the burden of finding, applying for and managing research funding. 

The changes will affect all researchers applying for UKRI funding. To support you, the university’s Research and Innovation team has drawn up guidance and FAQs. 

Please also look out for further communications and guidance as the service rolls out. 

Communicating our research

The research marketing and communications team in External Relations has put together a new SharePoint site, Communicating our research. 

The site aims to give you the tools to share your research success. 

You will find information, guidance and resources to support promotion of our research, to both our community and external audiences. This includes media training, establishing a web presence, public policy and engagement training, the Researcher Academy communication programme, and how to access expertise, imagery and assets such as PowerPoints. 

Research Culture Conference 2023

The Researcher Academy is inviting all research staff, postgraduate research students, technicians, academics, senior leaders, and professional service staff to come together for the second edition of the university’s Research Culture Conference. 

It takes place on Thursday 6 July, 9.30am-3.30pm, at East Midlands Conference Centre, University Park.
