University and Joint Research Office Support

We develop and support research. Working in partnership with local research administrators in our faculties, schools, institutes and other research units as well as other professional service units.

University Research Office (URO)

We provide our researchers with a range of support including costing and pricing, managing contracts and intellectual property. The URO role is to support research relevant to the University's objectives by working closely with local research administrators. To do this we also help with; research strategy and policy development, funding opportunities and strategic activities, bids and initiatives.

The URO also manage any internal and external reviews of research including the Research Excellence Framework (REF) strategy, planning and submission.

The NJRO supports researchers in Newcastle University and Newcastle Hospitals.
