Research Strategy Office

The Research Strategy Office (RSO) supports the work of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, the Heads of the Schools and the Research Policy Committee in devising and implementing strategies and policies to maintain and increase the University's research funding; shape the University’s response to a changing research landscape and the requirements of our funding partners; and enhance Cambridge’s standing as a world-leading institution.

The Research Strategy Office team also works with researchers and research groups to help develop collaborative cross-disciplinary research activity, facilitate the development of institutional relationships with major research and industrial funders, support the University's submission to the REF, oversee certain strategically important cross-School grants, and co-ordinate the University's restricted calls process.

The Research Strategy Office works closely with the Research Operations Office and the Strategic Partnerships Office.
