Research IT Services


About Research IT Services

The Research IT Services (RITS) department develops, delivers and operates services to assist UCL researchers in meeting their objectives at each stage of the research lifecycle. 

Our vision is to create a world class ecosystem of services which supports the breadth of UCL's academic disciplines; a vision which requires continual improvement and reinvention to keep pace with the rate of technological advance and the changing requirements of the research community.

The future of Research IT Services

RITS has produced three year (2020-2023) roadmaps for each of the major areas covered by our services setting out our ambitious goals for transforming services and enabling innovative, world class research. These roadmaps play a major role in influencing the investment into Research IT over the coming years.   If you’d like to find out more about what we’re working towards, our roadmaps are available online:
