The ILO Research Support Network helps academics to deliver their research and maximise its impact.
Some of the ways we can help you...
Research Project Management
Project Officers and Managers provide high quality management of complex research activities – such as EU grants, EPSRC programme grants, cross-disciplinary and/or multi-partner research activities – to enable academics and research teams to focus on the delivery of the technical aspects of the work.
Research Group Support
Research Managers work in partnership with the Head of Research Group to develop and deliver the group’s research strategy and to manage the group’s research portfolio. Research administrators provide operational support to research groups, assisting with: workshops, conferences, lectures and events; website management; office and lab space management; travel arrangements; marketing; and other research-related activities.
The ILO team works towards maximising research impact by liaising with colleagues in Research & Enterprise Development (RED) and building links with industry to explore routes for research collaboration and commercialisation.
Research proposal preparation
Research Managers can assist with the preparation of follow-on funding proposals, liaising with RED to ensure proposals of the highest quality are submitted. The Industrial Liaison Manager is happy to advise on costing in appropriate project support to research proposals.
