Directory of IDs, HoDs and Directors of Research

Institute and Departmental Directors of Research have a key role to play in working with Institute Directors/Heads of Department to create an appropriate research culture and operate an effective Institute/Departmental research structure. They will be proactive champions of research and work on a range of research issues. In addition, some departments are appointing Impact DoRs to aid in the development of impact case studies for REF within their institute/ department; acting as the liaison between individual case study authors and the REF & Research Monitoring Team.
