The University has a Contracts and Compliance officer, Chris Kenning. He provides internal legal support and expertise in the area of research and funding.
He looks into Research Contracts in the University sector, with growing interest in ensuring the distribution of academic research for the enhancement of learning and the protection of the University’s commercially exploitable academic and scientific knowledge to the benefit of the University and staff where applicable.

Following the launch of the new European Horizon 2020 funding programme last week, UKRO have made factsheets for each of the new strands. You can access these by logging onto their site http://www.ukro.ac.uk/subscriber/funding/Pages/index.aspx.
The diagram below outlines the funding areas which are covered by H2020. URKO has factsheets for each of these topics. You can click on the diagram to enlarge it.
To be able to access this information, you will need to sign up for an UKRO account if you do not have one already. Alternatively, you can contact the External Projects Team requesting which factsheets you require and we can send them out.
The University has a high level of success in applying for European funding. If you have not been involved with an EU project before a good place to start might be to look at small funds that can help you meet other European partners. If you already have potential European links, a good place to start is by being a partner on a project.
If you are interested in making an application to Horizon 2020, make the External Projects Team your first port of call. firstname.lastname@example.org
A new factsheet outlining the new European Research Programmes –Horizon 2020 has been launched by UKRO today.
The factsheet nicely condenses the programme to show what research areas will be covered by the funding, who should apply and what is funded.
The External Projects Team will be getting out lots of information on the new programme over the coming weeks in preparation for the launch in January 2014. This document provides a good starting point to give an overview of the new scheme.
