The Research and Enterprise Directorate is the University department responsible for central management of the University’s activities and strategy in research and knowledge exchange, and for providing comprehensive support to academic departments in their research and impact activities. Its primary purpose is to mobilise the University’s research and knowledge base in pursuit of excellence and financial sustainability, and to ensure that its research skills, knowledge and know-how benefit external users. In an environment of high competition for research funding and rapid change in funder expectations of Higher Education institutions, the Directorate leads operational change management in order to ensure that York remains competitive and successful in research and knowledge transfer.
The Directorate works closely with the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research, the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Partnerships and Knowledge Exchange, the University Research Champions and the Associate Deans for Research.
