Research Development team:

  • aims to increase funding application activity to externally peer reviewed funding sources and the quality of applications against funders’ strategies
  • supports LSE staff with their grant applications and liaises with internal parties for approval of proposals and external parties for contractual negotiations and agreements
  • assists in developing grant-writing skills
  • encompasses Business Partnerships (formerly known as the Corporate Relations Unit) within the Research Division. Identifies appropriate corporate research partners and funding opportunities, develops and sets up long-term sustainable research partnerships with the corporate sectors whilst ensuring compliance with LSE regulations.
  • creates greater awareness of Knowledge Exchange and Impact (KEI) activities both within the LSE and at an individual level through KEI projects funded by the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) and the ESRC Impact Accelerator Account
