The Research Services Office (RSO) in the ANU College of Business and Economics provides the support for the development, management and administration of the College's research activities and the achievement of the College's research goals.
We provide strategic advice and support to our College academic staff for both internal and external funding. The College requires that all grant and funding applications are processed though the RSO. Our Office support therefore includes coordinating the submission of all applications to external funding bodies, assistance with and strategic advice on applications, feedback on draft applications, technical advice on ANU and funding body requirements and policies, and the ANU Costing, Pricing & Approval Tool.
Our team is also responsible for the post award management of external research funding. We coordinate the award acceptance process, assist with and negotiate research contracts, advise or assist with advice intellectual property issues, provide advice on contractual obligations, and coordinate milestones and project reports for the official ANU records (ARIES).
In addition, the College provides support, under the oversight of our College Research Committee, for our academics in their research work with a variety of internal funding and support schemes and programs and to which the RSO also provides the administrative support and advice.
