    and Understanding the Challenges in Research

    Peter G Waterworth

              Research is rarely a solo activity, even solo research. Research must be conceived, constructed, processed and disseminated in appropriate settings within frameworks that have been developed and refined over centuries by trusted, wise and experienced fellow-researchers. Our peers contribute in many fundamental ways to our understanding of what research is and how it should be conceptualised. This is no more significant than in research institutes within universities where the criteria for project approval, project funding and budgeting, ethical approval and project reporting are set and monitored. Further, the acceptance of project reports is mediated by panels of peer reviewers. Research is a team activity (even, again, in solo research) because the outcomes of research are measured against the accumulated outcomes of research by other researchers stretching back decades or even further. This paper raises the question of how universities may foster and support an expansion in quality and range of research activities. What functions do university research institutes have in enhancing the quality of the work of their most experienced researchers, in encouraging and supporting new researchers and in increasing the research output of their institutes? How can they increase the creative or innovative elements of research and how can they ensure that research is conducted for productive and sustainable purposes for the benefit of humankind?
