Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this investigation is to explore research management problems pertaining to types of research where direct outputs are in terms of intangible ideas or the kind of knowledge which takes years to be proven applicable or economically fruitful. The study was based on the analysis of the more cogent facets of research input-outputs concerning non-profit research organizations represented as open systems. The main inputs are information, manpower, and capital, and the outputs are in terms of direct and indirect contributions to different segments of society. The investigation led to the following conclusions: a. The prototype classification (basic research, applied research, and development) is of no value at investigators level, but may be of value for external budgeting. b. Research management could increase the extent of its influence and control over both internal and external budgeting by increasing its knowledge of relationships between expenditures. c. Qualitative attributes of researchers should not influence the allocation of research funds. d. Discussion on the quality of types of research and comparative value of research proposals along with other discussed materials in this study, led to a new perspective on the "old concept of R&D evaluation". A ten-step procedure regarding the evaluation of research proposals and allocation of resources in non-profit research institutes was proposed.
