Greenwich Research and Innovation (GRI) is the University’s central unit providing high quality support to the academic community to assist in the delivery of the ambitious Research and Knowledge Exchange (R&KE) sub-strategy  within the University’s Strategy 2030 .  GRI is structured to support all aspects of the project cycle from identifying relevant funding opportunities right through to maximising the impact from the University’s activities.
