Don’t take it for granted

June 18, 2015

The article on grant income targets identifies Abertay University as one of 11 universities that set “grant-winning goals” for individual academics (“Grant goals set for staff at one in six campuses”, News, 11 June). In fact, while submitting grant applications and raising research income are part of the academic role at Abertay and are considered in annual appraisal meetings, we do not set individual “grant-winning goals” for research income. We acknowledge that our response to your Freedom of Information enquiry wasn’t sufficiently clear about this.
