OUR WORK AREAS

Our work is organised across 10 areas, which we call Work Packages.

Work Packages 1-5 are the core research areas that the Supergen ORE Hub partner institutions are funded by EPSRC to undertake. You can find out more about them on our Area Strategy page

Work Packages 6-10 provide the wider mix of operational, cultural and funding elements of our work.


Each Work Package is led by a Co-Director who has responsibility for management of that area of our activity:

Sector and Area Champions

In addition to the Work Package leads, we also have a number of Co-Directors who act as Sector and Area Champions - specialists in disciplines that cross-cut all of our work. Their expertise is essential to help us coordinate and report on activities and opportunities, provide a point of contact externally and have responsibility for identifying synergy and cross-cutting opportunities in ORE hub research. The respective champions for International and Data Management will be responsible for integrating those strategies across all Work Packages.
