Resourcing your Research
In addition to ensuring that your research will comply with the standards outlined in the Code, when preparing your research proposal, you and your School should consider the minimum resources to which you will require access during your candidature in order to successfully complete your proposed research project.
These will be specified in the minimum resources proforma, which forms part of the core component of the structured program' form. Your school may provide a fixed amount of money to you each year for research related purposes (e.g. travel, conference and workshop attendances, photocopying, printing, interlibrary loans etc).
The agreed sum will be specified on the minimum resources proforma. It is important to note that the proforma is not a legally binding document, but is an undertaking that your School has considered and is able to provide the resources and facilities to which it is expected you will need access during your research. Ongoing resource needs and entitlements are reviewed each year at the time of the annual review.
