Ian Smith


Vice-Provost (Research & Research Infrastructure)
Monash University


11:00 AM Integrating Quality Management Systems (QMS) to Refine Operational Processes and Maximise Research Output

The inundation of ‘Big Data’ in our research environment requires sufficient capacity to collect, collate and analyse. Developing integrated technology platforms to leverage the wealth of data collected by researchers would drive significant costs in time and resources, which is what Monash University have been working on for the past two years. Their new development of an integrated Quality Management System allows the collection and collation of different data sets across all platforms, from tracking equipment use, user base, revenue and research activity, to transferring data for both secure storage and distribution. This session will explore the integration of technology into the University’s operational structures to help deliver translational research outcomes.

  • Engaging with university and industry partners to develop best technologies for the application of the QMS
  • Better integration of research infrastructure to improve information transfer and drive productivity and performance.
  • Strategies to collect, collate and analyse data to make strategic and informed research decisions.
