When we ordinarily talk of post-award support within research administration, invariably we are talking about drafting, negotiating and accepting contracts, dealing with project finance and reporting to funders, but very little is ever mentioned about post-award Project Management and the delivery of the research project. Here in the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University our research strategy, management, and administration extends along the entire research project life-cycle; from bidding strategy development; funding opportunity identification; bid preparation; submission; post-award project delivery; and project close. This good practice exchange session will demonstrate the advantages of a robust project management environment and how it has positive effects on grant success, the delivery of research impact and learning innovation. It will give practical applied principles that can be replicated and implemented without clogging research environments with unnecessary bureaucracy. The session will be structured around a presentation which guides delegates through the model and principles successfully applied within the Institute of Educational Technology, allowing for open discussion wherever necessary. The session should appeal to all perspectives of research delivery; operational, managerial and leadership, because there are benefits that are not just functional but also strategic, particularly as we move towards REF2020.
