Sponsored Research Policy
The Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) is set apart from many other institutions because of its role and goal as a research university. Most of the IUB‟s Sponsored Research takes place within individual departments and academic units, including the institution's centers and institutes, and through partnerships IUB has developed with different entities. These activities are critical to the fulfillment of IUB‟s research agenda. To protect the integrity and transparency of all research activities, IUB must have in place specific policies and procedures that will ensure compliance with the requirements and provide a common understanding of applicable processes and guidelines within the IUB System. The purpose of this policy is to ensure successful management of grants and contracts. All proposals, contracts and agreements related to research and sponsored activities shall be reviewed centrally to ensure compliance with university policies. Additionally, this policy aims to create possible opportunities for researchers and provide ground for rational and equitable distribution of monetary and other benefits of IUB.
