NEU RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT POLICY

 

  • The conduct of useful and quality R & D projects is part of the manifestation of the commitment of all constituents of New Era University—administrators, faculty members, staff, and students—to the institution’s vision, mission, and goals & objectives, specifically articulated in the school’s statement of Goals and Objectives No. 4.

 

  • Adherence to priority research areas enumerated in the NEU Research & Development Agenda (NEU-RDA) is essential for the institutional recognition of all R & D undertakings by constituents of the university.

 

  • The CReED is the coordinating office of all R&D undertakings to ensure efficiency, quality, and adherence to NEU R & D policies.

 

  • All constituents of the university may undertake R & D projects. Project undertakers may be individuals or teams of not more than three (3) members. A research team may be composed of members from a sector or a combination of individuals from the different sectors of the university.

 

  • R & D undertakings that may be accepted for institutional recognition may be in the form of Formal Research and Evaluation Studies that have the end goal of improving institutional programs and systems, as well as creating, evolving or developing novel ideas or technology that promote the university’s aspiration of being a research university.

 

  • Institutional R & D undertakings that seek funding, financial grant or honorarium rewards have to be approved by the University Research Council (URC) through a deliberation process.

 

  • The application for approval for R & D projects is initiated by the undertaker through the submission of a project proposal, which is reviewed and evaluated in a methodical manner.

 

  • Based on the nature and scope of the project and as decided by the URC, R & D undertakers are provided with the following incentives, support, or rewards:
  • Honorarium or financial remuneration equivalent to not less than three (3) but not more than six (6) units teaching load of the Faculty
  • Merit points in the employee evaluation for ranking and promotion
