Description - Managing Research by Robert W. Bushaway

Research is a longstanding and well-recognized function of universities but research policy, funding and management have become ever more complex and the research context has altered dramatically. This book helps us to understand the changes in and complexity of managing research in universities. As a compendium of information, the work is based on Bob Bushaway's dozen years or so experience of leading a Research and Enterprise Services office in a major UK research-led university. He addresses key questions such as: how should research in universities be organized, supported and managed?; how should external funding be obtained?; and what are the operational difficulties universities face in seeking research grants or in research contracting, and how are these overcome? This work provides practical help and guidance to researchers, research directors and heads of department, research managers, administrators, senior university managers, research support professionals and other higher education staff with responsibilities for research at the strategic levels. It is the authoritative and comprehensive guide to this complex field.
