Research Policy and Support


Welcome to the Research Policy and Support web pages.


We are responsible for enhancing and supporting the research environment at Anglia Ruskin University. A major part of our function is supporting institution-wide activities that support and enhance research - for example, we manage institutional preparations for the Research Excellence Framework (REF); are involved in promoting and supporting the open access and research data management agendas; oversee institution-wide researcher development activities; and implement the various national Concordats that set out best practice requirements for the research environment, including the HR Excellence in Research Award. In addition, we engage with other inititiatives that support and enhance research - for example, we are responsible for Anglia Ruskin's involvement in the CROS and PIRLS surveys and similar exercises, and are helping look after research systems developments.

In January 2016, Anglia Ruskin established a Doctoral School (located within Research and Innovation Development Office) as the new home for support for our postgraduate research provision. Parts of the old Research Support and Training Team have been incorporated into the new Doctoral School as part of this re-organisation. Material formerly on these pages can now be found in the Doctoral School area.
