The UOW Research Active Policy has been revised to support the 2020-2025 University Strategic Plan and the Research and Innovation Strategy.

These changes have been informed by an 18-month consultation with Associate Deans (Research), the Research and Innovation Division, Governance and Legal, Human Resources, PODS and the Library.

A new name has been proposed (“Research Performance Policy”), and the focus has shifted away from mandating minimum thresholds, to supporting researchers to meet realistic performance targets, informed by national discipline benchmarks, median levels of performance for UOW staff and an emphasis on quality.

In response to feedback, the consultation period has been extended until early 2022 to ensure that staff have adequate time to consider and respond to proposed changes to the policy.
