Explore takeaways that will help you better explore new international opportunities in higher ed and expand existing transnational collaborations.
Many universities are not achieving full recovery of facilities and administrative (F&A) costs, which leaves money on the table. This insight outlines how universities and research teams should approach F&A rates and policies for both industry partners and foundations to recover as much F&A as possible.
Research offices today must address unpredictable funding shifts, complex regulations, and increased competition from other schools for grant funding. These challenges expand and diversify the scope of a research office’s work. To tackle these diverse challenges and improve university research functionality, leaders often look to optimize the organizational structure of their office. A smart organizational structure will help offices streamline processes, improve communication, and designate activity ownership.
While early-career faculty often work under clear expectations, are protected from service obligations, and have multiple supports, faculty later on in their careers face many potential stall points. Our insight outlines four tactics to help university research leaders provide post-tenure support and professional development opportunities to faculty.
With amplified interest in growing partnerships with companies, universities must evaluate their current partnership strategy and seek new ways to diversify and deepen their industry engagements. Read our brief to learn how to develop a market-smart organizational design.
Explore four resources that will help chief research officers protect universities from foreign interference in the research enterprise.
Research labs are expensive to build and renovate, and decentralized space governance makes it difficult to maximize the value of existing space or streamline inefficient processes. Follow the steps in this Roadmap to collaborate with facilities, research, and academic leaders to develop a more proactive and integrated campus strategy for designing and managing research labs.
Update on US-China research relations, and headlines you might have missed during the COVID disruption
The drumbeat of US vs. China sentiment in Washington DC has grown stronger, giving way to new policies and positions that will negatively impact US research universities. Some of these dustups make national news, but given the whirlwind of information related to COVID, it is easy to lose track of what is happening on a global scale. This write up summarizes stories relevant to university research leaders monitoring how the federal government is responding to foreign interference and global research partnerships.
Research ramp-up plans include exhaustive detail on how researchers can keep themselves and their colleagues safe as they return to their labs. But these plans can be daunting, sometimes providing too much detail and burying the most important information that individual PIs need to know. To help institutions craft more actionable ramp-up plans—and ensure they have taken the appropriate steps to safeguard researcher well-being—we have outlined the minimum health and safety measures they should enact for individual researchers.
