It was with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to write this book as a contribution to the Open University Press series on Managing Universities and Colleges, as it represents the distillation of my experience working in the sector over the past 25 years or so.

Successful grant awards were later registered against the individual principal investigator or, on rarer occasions, against a group of researchers. Apart from the financial administration associated with the resulting research grant, little else from the management viewpoint was required. If there was any intellectual property arising from the research, it was taken up by the national monopoly agency set up to exploit university commercial ideas, and if there were academic publications associated with the research, these appeared with due acknowledgements and were duly listed in the university’s annual research and publications report.
