The LSE Research Division offers advice and assistance to the School's academic community. It assists colleagues in identifying appropriate funding opportunities, and advises on the development of research grant proposals and research policy. It also provides support and advice on the management of research projects and the administration of grants awarded.
Your project coordinator often works with various departments and coordinators are organised in clusters so your department will have a named coordinator with whom you deal.
Research Excellence Framework (REF) - the new research assessment exercise. Under this site take a look at the 'Publications' section. Annexes A and B provide a timeline and details of panel configuration. Feedback from the pilot impact assessment will be published shortly (Social Policy participated in this for the School).
LSE Experts Directory - who researches what.
LSE Research Online - a collection of research produced by LSE academics: articles, working papers, book chapters, conference papers and more.
Both of these provide information and training on important issues for research managers, including funding sources, research ethics, intellectual property rights, costing and fixed-term contract staff.
