Research and Enterprise activities are central to SOAS’ mission. Not only do they enhance teaching and learning, they are also a crucial part of the services that we provide to the world around us. Research establishes new knowledge which extends the frontiers of human understanding and informs and sharpens scholarly debate. When this knowledge is transferred externally it shapes the policy and practice of governments, businesses, NGOs and informs the wider community.
The Research and Enterprise Directorate (REO) at SOAS works across the School to secure external funding and income, to support research excellence and to facilitate knowledge transfer.
