6 Research Funding Finding Funding ► Research Office weekly bulletin – subscribe to “Research Information” ► Research Office website – Funding Opportunities section ► Search tool – Research Professional Proposals ► Proposal support and review from Research Support Services ► Budget support from Finance Office ► IP/Commercialisation support from Technology Transfer Office ► Complete Research Proposal Authorisation Form for all proposals Awards ► On receipt of notification, inform Research Support Services ► Vice President Research is the legal institutional signatory for all research contracts ► Finance Office Cost Centre needs to be set up to allow expenditure on a project

7 Research Information System Web-based system for research profiles ► Single point of entry for research information ► Create Researcher CVs ► Generate Researcher Profiles for webpages ► Upload full-text publications to UL Institutional Repository ► Automatically imports ISI/Web of Knowledge & PubMed publications ► Increases visibility of researchers’ expertise ► Institutional Research Reporting Tool

8 Postgraduate Journey Finding Students ► Advertise positions on Graduate School website ► Market yourself – profile, website, PR, etc ► Graduate School also markets UL as postgraduate location – will match applicants where possible – but direct approaches to staff are more common Applications ► Graduate School administers applications (qualifications / funding verification)  Enrolment & registration  Student induction ► Co-supervision Progression ► Research postgraduate progression – annual process ► Panel supervision ► Disputes & appeals

9 Postgraduate Journey (cont.) Submission ► Graduate School administers thesis submission process ► External examiner contact ► Examination boards Other considerations ► Academic regulations ► Ethical approval ► Article-based thesis ► Structured PhDs  Stage 1: Mixture of taught modules, transferrable skills, research  Stage 2: Research  Special case: Structured PhD for international students – 1 st year is focused on English language skills, while developing research concept with supervisor

10 Knowledge Transfer National Framework ► National IP Protocol ► Requirements tied to all publicly funded research ► Forms one of the key benchmarks for evaluating research performance Key Activities ► Engagement with industry ► Invention Disclosures ► Patents ► Licences ► Spin-outs

11 Commercialisation Supports Research team IP & Patent Protection Market Evaluations Business Intelligence Negotiation & Legals Venture Development Venture Funding Mentoring Patent Searching Assist researchers to work within National IP Protocol Build researchers’ capability and reputation for transferring knowledge
