The purpose of the newly established Research Directorate is:

  • to increase the research outputs of the faculty through help with grant applications, protocol planning and writing of publications;
  • to streamline the administration of research to make it easier for everybody;
  • to make internal documents on research outputs, funding opportunities, funding calendar and the research calendar of the faculty available to staff members (faculty intranet).
