Definition

In accordance with Article 43.4 of the General Regulations, the term Research Group is understood as all of the University lecturers and researchers, as well as postgraduate and doctoral research scholarship holders, who have clear areas of research that are ongoing and seek to produce results (publications, patents, IT programs, project development, consultancy, etc). For these purposes, stable research groups may be formed within the previously established structures of Departments, areas of knowledge and Institutes in those cases where the size of the group, the specificity of the areas of research and the quantity and quality of the research results require so. In the same way, inter-departmental, inter-faculty or inter-university (with other universities or institutions) research groups may also be created if required due to the nature of the area of research and results sought.

Group establishment procedure

According to Article 43.4 of the General Regulations, in order to establish these research groups, consent is required from the Head of Institute or Department, as is approval from the Rector or person to whom he delegates the research-related matters, based on advice by the Research Committee, following a report from the Dean or Head of the corresponding School or Faculty. In the event that inter-faculty groups are formed, consent shall fall with the Rector or person to whom he delegates the research-related matters, based on advice by the Research Committee. Therefore, it is established that:

  • In order to form departmental research groups approval shall be required from the Rector or person to whom he delegates the research-related matters, based on advice by the Research Committee, following a report from the Dean or Head of the corresponding School or Faculty, having been reviewed by the Head of Department or Institute that the research group belongs to.
  • In order to form inter-departmental research groups approval shall be required from the Rector or person to whom he delegates the research-related matters, based on advice by the Research Committee, following a report from the Dean or Head of the corresponding School or Faculty, having been reviewed by each and every one of the Heads of Departments or Institutes that the members of the research group belong to.
  • In order to form Inter-faculty Research Groups approval shall be required from the Rector or person to whom he delegates the research-related matters, based on advice by the Research Committee, following a report from the Dean or Heads of the corresponding Schools or Faculties, having been reviewed by each and every one of the Heads of Departments or Institutes that the members of the research group belong to.

Belonging to a research group does not necessarily imply acceptance of a specific time commitment to research tasks for each of its members. Specific time commitment shall be assessed according to the degree of participation of each lecturer/ researcher in the various projects.

By means of the Research Results Transfer Office (OTRI), the Research Committee shall keep the Database for the University research groups up-to-date.

Procedure for monitoring and, where applicable, withdrawal

It is the Research Committee who will monitor the activities carried out by the research groups. The Committee shall perform an annual review of the achievements shown in the activity Reports of the groups. It is the Rector or person to whom he delegates who shall withdraw a research group, following a report from the Deans or Heads of the corresponding Schools or Faculties, having been reviewed by each and every one of the Heads of Departments or Institutes that the members of the research group belong to.
