Research Consulting was founded by Rob Johnson to provide consultancy, advice and support services to organisations involved in the management and dissemination of research. The challenges of managing of research are substantial and growing, and yet Rob noticed that few third party service providers truly understand the field of research management. Research Consulting is intended to fill this gap, providing a professional consultancy service that is informed by a deep understanding of the research policy and funding environment.
Rob is a Chartered Accountant by training and before forming the company spent eight years working with clients in the higher education sector for an international professional services firm, followed by four years in a key research management role at the University of Nottingham. He works with a wide range of clients across the higher education, healthcare, and academic publishing sectors, and is well-placed to assist start-up companies and SME’s in identifying potential collaborators and funding sources.
