We work together to provide a service across the School that incorporates research, consulting, commercialisation and student entrepreneurship. Our overarching aim is to support all stages of the research lifecycle of projects or studies – from inception to completion – to create impact in the wider world. In doing so, we strive to deliver a high quality service to both the School’s academic community and to our external clients.

Our services include identifying funding opportunities, proposal support, contract management, legal and technical support, and business engagement. Our Research and Innovation teams engage with academics, researchers and entrepreneurs to apply their expertise to real-world issues and contribute to LSE’s mission for the betterment of society.
