Research Strategy

Strategic Aim 6

We will ensure that our researchers’ contributions are fully recognised, and that professional research support is available to them.

Objectives

1 QMUL affirms that its success in research relies upon the commitment and enthusiasm of its researchers, and will strive to ensure that appropriate time, facilities and resources are available to them

2 QMUL will work towards ensuring that all aspects of the contributions of researchers to QMUL are accounted for in terms of their work, and that an appropriate balance of research and non‐research work is realised

3 QMUL will support researchers in the preparation of grant applications by implementing an internal peer‐review process to provide guidance and advice on all major grant application

Indicators of Progress
QMUL will be in the top ten (top 15 for EPSRC, NERC, ESRC) funded universities for each of the major UK Research Councils by 2018/19
Research grant income per academic will be in the top ten amongst UK Higher Education Institutions (HEI) by 2018/19
QMUL will diversify its research income so that more than half arises from outside the UK public purse by 2018/19, in particular through an increase in European Union funding
UK Research Council grant success rates for QMUL will match the median for Russell Group institutions, with similar success rates for other major funding agencies, by 2018/19

4 QMUL will continue to invest in professional support for research grant applications, adapting this to changing needs such as the growth in larger collaborative grants, inter‐disciplinary awards, doctoral training awards and opportunities to diversify income through growth in EU and other non‐UKRC funding sources
