Research governance

All researchers should be aware of research governance issues and when they apply to research activities. The pages here provide policies and guidance information on these issues.

Due diligence on overseas research partners

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the main UK Government research funder, requires that for the University to transfer control of research grant funds to overseas partner organisations, the University must have a risk-based policy and process in place for undertaking due diligence checks on those organisations.

The University's policy and process is currently in the process of being finalised. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact researchintegrity@st-andrews.ac.uk

Export controls

The University is currently developing a website detailing its guidance to researchers on export control legislation.

In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact Export controls:
