Measures to improve institutional performance in
CERG exercises
5
Principles
  • providing incentives to encourage high-quality
    CERG applications
  • reward excellent performance
  • reinforce team work in research

6
New Measures
  • Longer lead-time for proposal development
  • Funding for friendly external reviews
  • Merit award for successful CERG projects
  • Incentive award for fundable but not funded
    projects
  • Top-up funding for successful Individual
    Research Grants
  • Staff mentoring

7
New Measures in detail
  • Longer lead-time proposal preparation advanced
    to November of the preceding year
  • External reviews funding for Faculties to invite
    external reviewers for proposal critique and
    brainstorming
  • Merit awards a fixed-sum award of HK50,000 for
    each successful CERG project, to be shared among
    PIs, their departments and faculties

8
New Measures in detail
  • Incentive for FBNF a fixed-sum award of
    HK30,000 for each successful FBNF project, to be
    shared between PIs and their departments
  • Topping up IRGs for recruiting replacement
    teachers
  • Staff mentoring encourage Chair Professors to
    take up mentoring role for junior research staff

9
RGC funded projects ClinicalHKU 2002-03
  • Out of 41 funded projects, 5 (12) were clinical
  • Out of 132 submissions, 26 (20) were clinical
  • Success rates clinical (19), overall (31)
  • Out of 158 submissions in 2003-04, 38 (24) were
    clinical

10
Clinical Research Fellowship Scheme
  • To provide outstanding young clinicians with
    opportunities to receive further medical training
    in clinical research
  • A fellowship application should be accompanied by
    a CERG research proposal of which the applicant
    will be the PI.
  • The fellowship award is conditional on the CERG
    proposal being supported.

11
Clinical Research Fellowship Scheme
  • Who can apply
  • Full-time clinical teachers of HKU or
  • Full-time clinicians working in the HA

12
Clinical Research Fellowship Scheme
  • Fellowship applications will be judged on
  • quality of the candidate
  • strength of the mentors endorsement
  • quality of the CERG proposal
  • institutional priority/support

13
Longer-term Research Grant
  • to foster projects with research objectives to be
    realistically achieved in 4 to 5 years

14
Eligibility requirements
  • in addition to normal eligibility requirements,
  • applicants should not hold, as PI, more than 2
    projects, with a budget of more than 200,000
    each, irrespective of sources of funding,
    concurrently at the time of award of the
    longer-term grant
  • researchers may hold, as PIs, at most one
    longer-term grant at any one time and will not be
    allowed to bid for RGC funding in the first 3
    academic years of the project

15
Other considerations
  • subject to the same CERG peer-review standards
    procedures. Quality of proposals remains the
    principal consideration, particular emphasis on
  • the number of all on-going projects of which an
    applicant is a PI or Co-I to ascertain that the
    applicant will have time and capacity to
    undertake a longer-term project
  • proven track record of the applicant in
    delivering research outputs in previously
    RGC-funded projects

16
Disbursement
  • Funding to be released in 2 installments
  • Release of the 2nd installment is subject to
    satisfactory progress of the project
