Research Management Business Transformation Program

The Research Management Business Transformation (RMBT) Program encompasses a broad range of targeted projects designed to streamline, enhance and support research, researchers and research training through the provision of new digital solutions, including:

  • visibility and improved service for research management such as grants and ethics,
  • easy research collaboration with safe, accessible data storage for our researchers and their partners both internal and external to UQ,
  • enhanced portability and security of research data through digital research notebooks,
  • transparency of candidature for Higher Degree by Research candidates and advisors, and
  • greater visibility and access to research equipment and infrastructure for UQ researchers and external collaborators from the sector and industry.

For more information on the RMBT Program please contact Sue O'Brien, the RMBT Program Manager.
