Title: Building capacity for challenge-led and mission-oriented research through integrated research and innovation support


In this presentation, I will talk about how Durham University has brought together pre- and post-award support services across the research and innovation agendas to provide a single, integrated service to academics across the institution. A post-implementation review of these changes indicates that the benefits of this approach include improved efficiency, service robustness and a major improvement in academic satisfaction, particularly in relation to the delivery of complex, multi-partner, interdisciplinary and challenge-led research.
