Research committee

The Faculty of Science Research Committee meets every month to discuss everything relating to research in the faculty, including:

  • University policy and direction where it impacts on research activities
  • Support available for research
  • Faculty funding
  • External data collection schemes
  • Grant applications and success rates

If there is an issue you feel the committee should be talking about, please bring it to the attention of the Research Director for your department, who is your representative on the committee.
