Research Technologies Subcommittee

Research Technologies Subcommittee

The primary role of the Research Technologies Subcommittee is to provide oversight and direction for the effective, efficient, integrated, and innovative use of research technologies at the institution. The committee will develop and maintain a strategic vision and plan for the advancement of research technologies at WesternU from an institutional, rather than unit perspective. The committee will be client-driven, with IT playing an advisory and supportive role.

Typical responsibilities of the Research Technologies Subcommittee will include assessing current and evaluating proposed research technologies, providing strategic project portfolio prioritization and resource allocation recommendations, identifying gaps and deficiencies in research lab equipment and infrastructure, forming and overseeing ongoing and ad-hoc work-teams to address specific issues, and reviewing and developing relevant metrics, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), policies and procedures.

The Research Technologies Subcommittee will be composed of representatives from each of the major research-related support areas of the institution, as well as representatives from various faculty committees as part of the shared governance process.
