2016 marked the beginning of a business transformation project designed to deliver a first-rate digital support system for researchers at UQ.

Important Update regarding Transformation of HDR and Research Administration Service

Phase 1

Eight teams made up of nearly 100 volunteers identified and implemented processes in research support areas. The groups have also produced design principles that will be embedded in future systems and workflows. Pilot programs for these systems and processes have been implemented with the support of business owners and members of the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research).

Phase 2

Detailed planning and documentation of the design requirements for an integrated research management system began in 2017 with a goal of completion by 1 July 2017. Training and process improvements will continue.
