- Funder Policy and Open Research
Open Research at the University of Manchester is led by the Office for Open Research which is responsible for the co-ordination of Manchester’s Open Research agenda. Through the establishment of our Open Research Service Partnership we are connecting research support, research IT, faculties and cultural institutes in a shared approach based on collaboration. With this approach we are enhancing the support already provided to researchers, accelerating the uptake of Open Research practices. The university-wide network partners include the Library, Research IT, Research Strategy, Information Governance, Research Governance, Ethics and Integrity, Research Services, Research Degrees and Researcher Development, and also the University of Manchester Press, the Communications and Marketing Departments and the wider Open Research Network at Manchester.
