With the ever growing competitiveness of the research funding landscape smaller institutions are recognising the need to be innovative in order to increase their share of research funding. Many have started to professionalise their research support through implementation of new approaches to resource sharing and collaboration as well as building internal research infrastructure that is more common to larger institutions. But how can you drive these changes when resources are restricted and institutions have been predominately teaching-led in the past? This workshop, led by Leeds Trinity and St Mary’s Universities with input from other smaller institutions including Newman and Bishop Grosseteste Universities, will provide a unique insight into developing and implementing research strategies and culture when budgets are tight and you are starting from a low base. The workshop will outline examples of research development structures whilst also describing a number of practical approaches to developing research culture, using examples of grant development support, research management systems and career development support for researchers. These approaches may be of benefit particularly to staff operating at departmental/faculty level across a range of institutions.
