The Research Office has launched a new website, the Research Support Hub
, which offers a one-stop-shop for researchers. Here researchers will be able to access all the information they require about research administration and UCT's research support services.
This site will replace the current Research Office site, which is set to be discontinued by the end of October.
If you are looking for our most up-to-date information around research administration and support please visit our new Research Support Hub here.
If you have any feedback or suggestions regarding information you would like to see on the Research Support Hub, please email Natalie Simon.
Hosting a Conference
The primary aim of this grant is to assist departments in arranging research conferences and symposia with seed funding to initiate conference arrangements. The focus is on providing support for smaller research conferences that otherwise would not take place without this seed funding. This grant is not intended for research development workshops or for large regular international conferences or national society annual conferences.
The HAC budget is allocated annually by the URC.
