Research is central to UCS strategy and is carried out primarily through the academic schools at UCS with the support of the Office of Research and Enterprise.
The role of the Office is to effectively promote research and scholarship across UCS and externally, and to support our academic schools in this mission. The Business Development team also work closely with the academic staff, engaging with businesses to support the development and growth of enterprise initiatives, such as leadership development and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs).
The Office currently houses the Norfolk & Suffolk Leadership Academies - a joint venture between all NHS organisations in Norfolk and Suffolk working together with UCS to provide a local centre of excellence to develop NHS leaders.
Furthermore, the Office of Research and Enterprise manages UCS’ Graduate School, which has been formed to increase the support available for postgraduate students.
Dr Penny Cavenagh is the Director of Research and Enterprise, Head of the Graduate School and Co-director of the Norfolk and Suffolk Leadership Academies.
