Research Institute Thematic Awards (RITAs)
The University has established the RITAs specifically to support staff bids involving interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary activities based within the three research institutes at EHU (I4P, ICE, PGMI). Interdisciplinary research here is understood as occurring where the contributions of the various disciplines are integrated to provide holistic or systemic outcomes: these tend to generate new ways of doing research which integrate the different disciplinary approaches. Multidisciplinary research brings together disciplines to investigate issues from each of their perspectives. Researchers may collaborate, but they maintain a separation of their disciplines in that process.
The aims of the RITAs are to:
- Generate high quality research outputs that would be eligible for inclusion in the REF for one or more team members
- Support the development of high quality impact case studies by supporting projects that link with external partners
- Help generate research clusters and groupings linked to the research institutes
- Support the generation of external bids.
