  • Support for research management and governance in Malaysia: Report from a two-day workshop Reports
  • Within the context of the Malaysia Education Blueprint for Higher Education 2015-2025, a small project was set up to support research governance and management in Malaysia. It was funded by the British Council and the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) through the Newton-Ungku Omar Fund.

    The ACU, Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, and University of Malaya were appointed to deliver the project activities from November 2015 until the end of March 2016. The project aimed to review the current Malaysian framework for research management and governance, identify needs and areas for improvement, explore best practice in the UK, and develop recommendations for improvement.
    This paper summarises the outcomes and lessons learned from the two-day project workshop, which took place from 2-3 February 2016 at the University of Malaya.

  • Workshop report: Strengthening Research Management Structures in African Universities Reports
  • A workshop on the Carnegie Programme to Strengthen Research Management Structures in African Universities was held from 11-12 May 2007 at the North West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa, following a benchmarking survey conducted by the ACU. All the participating universities (five Carnegie partner universities, four MacArthur Foundation partner universities, and four additional ACU member universities) participated in the initial benchmarking survey. The survey was intended to assess the level of research management activity and to develop a future programme of action. The report unpacks the content exchanged in each of these sessions based on a process of having two or three short introductory presentations on the topic, considering some discussion points to narrow down the discussions, and summarising the outcomes on the particular topic in terms of a qualitative discussion or a graphical model.

  • Research management in African universities Reports
  • This report publishes the results of the first research management programme seminar, held in Durban, South Africa, from 1-3 April 2001. The seminar brought together representatives of eleven universities - five from South Africa and six from elsewhere on the continent - deliberately chosen to reflect different levels of current provision. The purpose of the event was twofold. First, it gave participants an opportunity to benchmark current activities in detail, and identify specific areas for development. Second, it provided the programme organisers with valuable insight into the current level of activity and barriers to further progress.
