10. Meeting Strategic Objectives V: Enterprise and Collaboration
OUCS’s main objective here is to build up further its links with national funding agencies such as HEFCE, JISC, the Research Councils, and to seek sponsorship for major IT projects through the Development Office, OUCS’s own Research Facilitator, and KTPs. In turn it will seek to inform faculties, departments, and colleges about new funding opportunities; as well as bidding for external grants to cover some of its own new initiatives. OUCS will also liaise with local bodies to identify opportunities to provide appropriate (and funded) IT training and certification where possible.
