Managing Science

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the institutions that do science (universities and laboratories), and discusses their organization and structure, as well as the similarities and difference between universities and national and international laboratories. A university is generally understood to be an institute of higher education; it offers teaching to academic degree standard, and pursues research and scholarship. In contrast, laboratories have usually a well-defined domain and limited scope for enquiry beyond that domain. The business of running a university or a laboratory and the structures needed to support them are described, and the concepts of vision, mission, strategic planning and research funding are introduced and described. Academic freedom and research ethics are also discussed.

Keywords:   university, laboratory, organization, academic freedom, research, ethics, funding
