Causing a research TReMOR at NUST

NUST, through the Project Services Unit (PSU), recently secured a project entitled Toolkit for Early-career Research Managers Online Resources, referred to as TReMOR, for short. The aim of this toolkit is to provide guidance on the support required by researchers when applying for national and international grants.

TReMOR will include online resources, guidelines, practical tools and learning offerings, such as workshops, webinars and/ or podcasts. These will be centred around key areas of support throughout the pre and post- award processes. The team is also made up of colleagues from the UK (Cranfield University, De Montfort University and southern Africa (Stellenbosch University Botswana Open University, University of Witwatersrand and the University of Namibia).

Bas Rijnen, Projects Coordinator at PSU and Project Lead for the region, said “It is great to work closely with experienced peers to improve research support and management for national and international research impact.” Moreover, the project will provide an opportunity for benchmarking and best practice development through the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and experiences. “This a strategic project for NUST as it will add value towards systems and tools to facilitate and enhance multi/inter/intra-
disciplinary research capacity, innovation and development in all fields of applied science and technology,” said Rijnen.

The project co-led with Loughborough University, UK, forms part of the International Research Management Staff Development Programme, which is a collaboration between the African Academy of Sciences and the Association of Research Managers and Administrators, UK.
