Central Research Grants and Contracts Office
Central Research Grants and Contracts Office: university-wide support for research funding and related contracts
The Central Office provides specialist support for all King's staff with research funding that tends to be more complicated than the funders supported locally by the Campus offices.
The RGC Central Office comprises:
- The Pre-Award Team, providing support to staff with the funding applications to industry and government, as well as formal acceptance of awards offered and negotiation of all funding contracts.
- The Post-Award Team, providing post-award support, including day-to-day project management, claiming, reconciliation, and HR approval for all funders except the European Commission.
- The International Research Funding Office, providing both Pre and Post-Award support to staff with their funding applications to and awards from the European Commission and International Funders like NIH.
- The Contracts Team, providing support to negotiate agreements which enable research at King's, but which do not provide income, such as material transfer agreements and non-disclosure agreements.
