BSU Research, Innovations & Grants Policy

Rationale for the Research and Grants Policy 

In the past, research activities have not been well managed, particularly with respect to coordination at the central level. Institutional mechanism for storage, retrieval and dissemination of the research outcomes are inadequate and need attention. BSU has not had a coherent research policy document to guide and regulate the conduct of research for academic members of staff, postgraduate and undergraduate students. Most of the research outputs have not fed into national development, enhanced teaching and curricula development in the university. The formation of this Research and Grants Policy has been necessitated by the requirement to coordinate the expanding research and grants activities efficiently and effectively. This policy, therefore, is motivated by the following specific factors:

a) Growth of research programmes
b) Need to enhance internally and externally sourced funding
c) Need for improved research administrative infrastructure
d) Need for research regulatory framework and oversight, particularly with respect to ethical
e) Need to improve accountability and transparency for fiscal and administrative
management of research activities
f) Need to accelerate the development of research that ultimately results in improved
decision-making for the betterment of the living standards of many Ugandans, and
g) Need for strong infrastructure and mechanisms to support more effective collaboration
