#PRCN2020: But what IS research management?

Presented by

Jeremy Gibson, Queensland University of Technology, Australia

About this talk

Research management as a discipline is becoming of increasing importance, as universities focus on growing their research activity. The world of research funding is heavily competitive and the realities of COVID-19 will leave universities struggling to do more with less. Despite the importance of this work, it is often loosely defined, encompassing a number of support activities around research, with inconsistent terminology, sometimes even within the same organisation. This presentation will showcase the ongoing work at QUT to define a reference model that provides a standardised way to discuss and evaluate these activities. This model has been developed as part of an iterative action design research approach, working with academics from the Business Process Management discipline at QUT. This approach will be detailed in this presentation along with the validation that has now been conducted with research management experts at research organisations across the sector. The elements of the model will be broken down as well as real world use cases where the model is currently being applied to better manage the field of research management.
