of Research and Innovation Services (RIS) and provides
comprehensive support to academic and PSS colleagues across the
lifecycle of a research project. The team comprises pre- and
post-award services, consultancy support, and systems

and contractual advice and management to all researchers at Durham,
from planning, costing, and pricing the initial proposal to
ensuring that contracts and agreements are negotiated effectively
and efficiently to ensuring robust financial management and
compliance of awarded projects. Research Operations works alongside
the various teams which make up the Research & Innovations
Service and in partnership with Professional Support colleagues
across the University to help facilitate research-related planning,
reporting and development and to meet the needs of both the
individual researcher and the wider institution.
