Research Governance Compliance & Risk Team

We work with researchers, research leaders and a range of internal and external stakeholders to ensure that the University meets its regulatory and legal obligations and upholds its commitments to the highest standards of research integrity, governance and compliance.

We:

  • Enable the University and researchers to meet their responsibilities relating to research integrity and ethics.
  • Collaborate with colleagues both at the University and other institutions to promote and embed a culture of good practice in research.
  • Provide specialist advice on national and international security and export control legislations, and Trusted Research-related issues.
  • Oversee and manage the preparation and submission of export control licenses.
  • Work in partnership with academic and professional staff across the University to shape policy and processes to underpin institutional compliance.
  • Work in collaboration with colleagues in Colleges and Schools who are engaged in supporting research integrity and governance, to provide comprehensive, coordinated support to researchers around good research practices, integrity and governance, including awareness raising.
