Research governance structure

Research Committee

The Research Committee is responsible to The Open University Senate for strategy and policy relating to research, the delivery of impact from research, and research degrees and higher doctorates in the University. It has responsibility for monitoring standards and promoting excellence within research at The Open University. It receives reports from formal governance bodies in its substructure, and other independent management groups on any matters within its remit where governance oversight is required.
