  1. Celebrating our success Dr Jon Hunt, Deputy Director of RDSO

  2. A successful year for the University so far • Over £32.5M awarded via 233 grants • Biggest funder still EPSRC (£17M) • EU commission £4.6M (compared to £3.8M for whole of last year) • UK industry currently at £1.8M (exc. £2.7M from WW) (compared to £4M for whole of last year) • 12 awards above £500k, 4 above £1M(RD&C, e.g. Raithby, WW, ESRC...)

  3. Research volume University of Bath income 2012: £196M QR QR~£17M + ext fund ~£27M = Research £44M income pa

  4. Threats • Pressures leading to reduction in overall research funding: • Post-REF: • QR income reduction, maybe up to 25% (£4M) • External income need to maintain or grow • Increased focus on critical mass investments • CSR 2015 will question Research Council budgets • Charities have less funding due to recession • Alliances between universities, e.g. N8, M5 and SES5

  5. Strengths • Good reputation: funders • Excellent outputs recognised by HEFCE • Pockets of critical mass • Strongly collaborative culture • Strategic partner with EPSRC (our major funder)

  6. Weaknesses • Unbalanced portfolio • Capacity: Burn out • Pockets of experience with European funding • Very little funding from other Research Councils • Limited business investments • Pathways to impact not taken seriously

  7. Opportunities • Funders still open for business • Research Councils and TSB • Europe: ERC, Marie Curie, Collaborative R&D, InterReg (inter-regional network grants) • Charities • Industry • How do we widen the pool of grant holders? • How to strengthen relationships with industry?

  8. What’s my plan? • ADRs: priorities e.g. centres & institutes • Get into Europe • ERC • InterReg (inter-regional networking grants) • Marie Curie fellowships • Lobbying for priority areas (in H2020) • Treat pathways to impact plan as value chains to build relations to secure future business income • Network with other HEIs to access non-EPSRC funds • ECR program (currently H&SS) • Support for ‘calls for proposals’ and institutional bids

  9. Our help We’re here to help (Research Development): • Dr Caroline Ang • Dr Gareth Buchanan • Dr Susie Douglas • Dr Alison Evans • Dr Jon Hunt • Sarah Jones
