Principles, Guidelines and Processes for the Establishment and Management of Research Centres, Institutes and Units


The University of Waikato supports the establishment and operation of a range of research platforms.

 

Research Centres bring together a range of research expertise, often (but not necessarily) from different disciplines, which over time undertake a programme or programmes of research through a series of interrelated projects.

Research Institutes follow a similar definition to Centres, but tend to have a more permanent and on-going presence, span a range of disciplines and are characterised by having dedicated staff.

Research Units are informal research platform typically operating at departmental or University level. Research Units bring together staff members who have common research goals, strengths and expertise.

Service-Based Units are typically focused on a laboratory, facility, specific expertise and/or methodologies providing specialist services to other parts of the University and to outside organisations.
