Funding For Research and Research Training and Its Effects on Research Activity

What is it about?

This research involved the participation of government officials, university executives, and academic staff.

Why is it important?

The study’s findings show that the current levels of national and institutional funding for research and research training can affect university research activity. These effects were observed in the following areas: (1) the attractiveness of undertaking a GRD, (2) the type of research undertaken, and (3) the support for the dissemination of research. Another significant concern identified by this study is that engagement of staff in research is an issue of funding.
