Professors and Their Grant Targets

Inside Higher Ed
June 11th, 2015

Grant income targets for individual academics, which have been blamed for the suicide of Stefan Grimm, a professor at Imperial College London, exist in some form at about one in six British universities, a survey suggests.
Times Higher Education submitted a Freedom of Information request to all U.K. universities, asking whether they set such targets. Of the 93 that responded, 11 said that at least some of their departments, faculties, institutes or schools set individual grant-winning goals for at least some individuals. Those are Imperial, Queen Mary University of London, Abertay University, Plymouth University, Robert Gordon University and the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, East Anglia, Glasgow, Greenwich and Leeds.
