Easier than ever to find research support at KI
The web page "Research Support & Services" has recently been developed to provide an overview of the support and specialised competences available to all researchers, both at their departments and at other units at KI.
What support is available to researchers?
This new presentation of research support is a result of the Lotsen project - one of the main sub-projects within the programme Harmonized professional services. The Lotsen project aimed to summarise, develop and supplement information in order to allow researchers understand what support is available to them within many different areas. The project was run by a group from KI Central Administration (UF) together with three department representatives.
Goals of the 'Lotsen' project:
- Summarise broad expertise and support offered to researchers within many different areas.
- Contribute to greater understanding of what researchers need to do and when.
- Connect competences at the departments with those at the university administration so that research support processes are linked and efficient.
- Develop a modern web page that presents all available research support, including content development of the following areas:
RSO - Research Support Office
Research Support Office is a new division at KI Central Administration (UF) that was established in January 2021. RSO has coordinated the work within the Lotsen project, and continues to develop content within different areas of research support.
During 2023 we continue to work on clarifying what research support is offered, and how researchers can receive such support. We focus on developing effective communication, simple web navigation, as well as producing modern pedagogical materials (films, pictures, workflows) which aim to increase understanding of different processes and available support.
