RAD – who are we?

In 2013 the professional staff at Flinders University saw an opportunity to create a university-wide network of staff who support the research activities of the University, and RAD was established. We are an informal network that relies primarily on the support of our members to achieve our aims to:

  • Improve lines of communication amongst professional staff who support research activities
  • Develop efficiencies through the sharing of best practice and facilitate the establishment of uniform practices consistent with University policy
  • Build the capacity through skills and knowledge transfer via formal and informal training and mentoring
  • Assist in training new professional staff in research administration, management or development roles to smoothly transition into their roles within the University
  • Facilitate cross disciplinary research activity within the University in line with the University Strategic Plan
  • Improve Flinders responsiveness to new research opportunities which require significant collaboration and administration
