    Complementary Information

    At least 25, up to 50 individuals involved, at 2-7% of working time each, giving an estimated total of around 2.0FTE.

    Kingston is a University, delivering teaching, research and knowledge exchange. Academics belong to extensive networks across Europe in relation to these activities, but have very little involvement in activities such as lobbying and advocacy designed to directly influence EU policy, although our research may sometimes inform policy decisions. As such few staff as estimated above are involved in this type of activity.
