Research Information Management
The 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), R&I webpages/profiles, and the REF submission. The information recorded in Worktribe on all aspects or research can be used to generate reports for both internal and external reporting requirements.
