The Research Strategy Development Roadmap (RSDR) is one of the instruments produced in the LAURDS project. It serves to assist Latin American academic institutions develop their research strategies. The RSDR features the following elements:
- A universal research strategy framework consisting of nine elements that determine an institution’s research strategy. The universal framework renders the RSDR applicable across the great diversity of academic institutions in Latin America.
- Work process and workshop templates for facilitating the execution of the roadmap.
- A deployment-ready research strategy assessment questionnaire with accompanying analysis tool
- A facilitator handbook to provide guidance on the deployment of the RSDR. The roadmap depends on an expert facilitator to manage research strategy development process.
The RSDR is downloadable for registered and approved members in the resources section of the website.
