The Business of Research

In an environment where funding levels for research are static or declining, it is more important to than ever to make sure such funding is allocated to maximize long-term benefit, both to key stakeholders and society in general.  Our research in this area is focused on developing and implementing appropriate metrics to assess the success of strategic funding models.  At the same time, we are seeking to ensure that overall funding structures adequately address issues relating to sustaining the research infrastructure, including the development of the next generation(s) of scientists.
