Developing research proposals

The Research Strategy & Development team at King’s provides a central, dedicated research support function for each of the academic Faculties. We support high-quality, distinctive research with real impact, aligned with the College’s Research Strategy and funders’ strategic priorities.

Our externally-funded research portfolio brings in an annual income of £192 million (16-17). We support collaborative and global research, working with over 130 countries and hundreds of research institutions, industrial and cultural partners and businesses.

Our Research Development Managers focus on the co-ordination of major institutional funding applications, improving research in priority areas, provision of support and advice to academic staff, and input into research strategy. They offer:

  • help King's staff find the best sponsor and scheme for your research idea
  • advise on the process of putting an application together and help link academics from different parts of the university
  • feedback on draft sections of applications and administer internal peer review
  • briefing events and training for specific schemes, as well as sifts for very competitive schemes
  • manage and establish research partnerships through schemes such as Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and CASE studentships
