Building institutional research capacity is a primary responsibility of research administration. Indeed, one of the first questions asked in a prospective research officer’s job interview is “How would you build research capacity?” Usually this translates into “how would you increase research expenditures?” This requires wise investment of institutional resources. The research officer plays a pivotal role in these investments by distributing institutional funds to launch new research initiatives, expand existing programs, and provide emergency support. Challenges arise when deciding which programs merit support – and how much. This webinar explores effective methods for building research capacity that optimize the return on institutional research investments.
