Flinders Research NewsHappy Holidays for 2019
2019 has been another year of forward looking here at Flinders.
We have seen new research investment at Flinders with the announcement of $100 million investment over the next 5 years by our Vice Chancellor, Professor Colin Stirling. This has enabled initiatives such as the Research Infrastructure Scheme 2020, and a scheme that provides support for our early- and mid-career researchers intending to apply for an ARC DECRA or Future Fellowships or a NHMRC Investigator Grant.
New research platforms have been launched, including ResearchNow, the improved Research Manager Dashboard for finance, and ResearchNow Ethics & Biosafety - Animal Ethics for improved and time-saving management of animal ethics here at Flinders has been welcomed by our research community. In 2020 we will see the launch of the Human Ethics, and the Biosafety modules, as well as further improvements to ResearchNow.
The new Research Integrity Policy was released in 2019, adopting the revised Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2018) in full.
This edition marks the last Inspiring Research for 2019. We will be back at the end of January 2020 to begin our transition to our new platform - Research Link. Keep an eye out early in the new year for information on the new platform - including the ability to search and to set discipline preference views for our researchers via OKTA single sign-on.
We wish all staff a happy and safe holiday break and look forward to seeing you in 2020.
