The crucial role of the Office of Research thriving the investigation at UC
The Office of Research at Universidad Católica is consolidated as an essential support manager for UC researchers in its first five years. And the results are outstanding: more than a thousand Fondecyt projects awarded, around 900 experts from all areas of expertise developing impact research, and a robust network of centers and field stations throughout Chile.
"In 2015, and given the significant growth in research and doctorates at the University, the Upper Management decided to separate the office into two: Research and Doctorate, today Graduate School", explained María-Elena Boisier, Director of Research, who also assumed her position at that time.
In the last five years, "this Office allowed to deepen the investigation with the academic units and the researchers, along with broadening our scope of action with a strategic perspective oriented to national and international sources of financing," added Boisier.
