Research Information Management Team


The ‘new’ research management team supports the collection of research related information for research reporting and the policies which underpin research activity. Much of this information will be available through Worktribe, the research management system. We support the administration of Worktribe, as well as providing training and user guidance. The information recorded on Worktribe can be used to generate reports for both internal and external reporting requirements.
