The Research Office administers the university's research grants and policies, together with ongoing support and guidance to staff and students engaged in research. This includes assistance with grant applications, establishing ethics committees, and facilitating negotiations with external bodies relating to research collaboration or commercialisation. The director of each university's research office is listed below.

This list is intended to facilitate contact with research offices in each university, rather than allow mass distribution of material.
