Research Admin Forum (RAF)
The Research and Commercial Services Unit (RCSU) established the Research Admin Forum (RAF) to create the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss best practice for staff who assist researchers with research applications and research agreements.
RAF meets every 6-8 weeks to discuss a range of topics, issues and practices within the research forum. These meetings are an informal discussion and RCSU's aim is to create an open dialogue with administration staff at SCU.
