Development of a sustainable (cross)use and funding model for research laboratories

Project is currently inactive

Update the overview of the research infrastructure and map it based on its functions to plan (cross-)utilization, investment needs, and in-house and out-of-house services. At present, the university does not have a central overview of research infrastructure, its condition, depreciation, employment, and the need for investment. In addition, there is no central overview of the missing but necessary research infrastructure. Therefore, it is difficult to make informed central decisions regarding the use and planning of the budget. The project will result in a digitized overview of the research infrastructure based on functional units.

Project benefits

A comprehensive mapping of research infrastructure based on functional units is created. There is an overview of the need for investment, the need for development, and the need to write off, which supports the management decisions regarding the university’s budget and budget strategy.
