Research Units

CSO provides core funding for 5 Units, with each fulfilling one or more strategic roles as follows:

  • a Unit may be a centre of excellence in a field with high policy relevance
  • it may help to accelerate the development of research skills and expertise in a professional, disciplinary or subject area where a shortage has been identified
  • it may meet research needs created by policy or service developments
  • or it may 'plug a gap' in an area lacking a well-developed research tradition.
