Bristol Clear

As members of research staff at Bristol our Vice-Chancellor's Fellows are not only central to their particular research area, but also part of a wider research staff group which, across the University, comprises of over 1,400 individuals; as such you are crucial to the success of our institution. Bristol Clear is a resource for all research staff with a vision to provide an environment that encourages clarity, honesty and a renewed perspective. Our Bristol Clear website provides a range of resources tailored to research staff with lots of useful information about careers in research, exploring your options, and links to services and opportunities across the University and from external institutions.

Research and Enterprise Development (RED)

Research and Enterprise Development (RED) works with academics, researchers, students and entrepreneur communities within and also outside the University of Bristol. Whether you are an organisation or individual entrepreneur, a world-leading or early-career researcher, or a student entrepreneur with exciting ideas you will find that RED has people with the experience, knowledge, networks and expertise to assist. RED can support you with funding opportunities, navigating The Research Excellence Framework (REF) alongside support working with industry and managing research programmes.


PURE is the University of Bristol's research information system and institutional repository. We would like all the Vice-Chancellor's Fellowship cohort to create public profiles on PURE. Specific, research related outcomes will be collected via PURE, such as publications, external/internal public engagement, impact or further funding. Training will be delivered for the cohort.
