COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 21 June.


Decree (1): Administration of the University's
Intellectual
Property Policy

Explanatory note

The new University Statutes will come into effect on 1 October 2002. Under those statutes
Council will no longer make decrees to enact secondary legislation, and all such legislation
will take the form of regulations.

Council has now enacted new regulations to replace the existing decree governing the
administration of the University's Intellectual Property Policy (see Supplement (1) to
Gazette No. 4625, 5 June 2002, p. 1285). These regulations retain the
principles
on which the policy is founded, and clarify the procedures at the same time as setting them
out in the new drafting style. The following decree formally repeals the existing decree which
these new regulations will replace.

Regulation 1, paragraph (2) (b) confirms the role of Isis Innovation
Limited
in the exploitation of research funded with research council grants the conditions of which
do
not include such a requirement.

Regulation 1, paragraph (2) (c) specifies the Director of Research
Services
as the person who should be contacted in the first instance by a researcher wishing to exploit
intellectual property by some other means.

Regulation 2 makes applicable to any dispute between the researcher and the University
the new resolution procedure under Statute XVII, in place of the present determination by
an
independent expert, while also requiring consultation with specialist Counsel.

Regulation 7, paragraphs (4) and (5) provide for the standard proportions for the
distribution of net revenue to be varied, by agreement between the parties involved, in the
case of commissioned work.

Text of Decree

1 In Ch. VIII (Statutes, 2000, p. 550), delete Sect. XI and renumber existing
Sect. XII (p.
553) as Sect. XI.

2 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 2002.

OXFORD CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE
NEUROSCIENCE


Visiting Fellowships

The Oxford Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience is closely integrated with
the Medical Research Council Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience at Oxford and supports
work
on many aspects of brain research relevant to human cognition in several departments at
Oxford University as well as at other institutions.

The Centre encourages work in all areas of cognitive neuroscience across all relevant
disciplines and embraces research on experimental, theoretical, and clinical studies of
perceptual analysis, memory, language, and motor control, including philosophical
approaches
to cognition. Current and fuller information on the Centre is available on the Web at
http://www.cogneuro.ox.ac.uk.

The Centre offers several forms of support including Visiting Fellowships for
distinguished researchers from overseas or elsewhere in Britain who wish to work within the
Oxford Centre for periods between a week and several months. A Visiting Fellowship can
include a modest grant to help with costs of travel and accommodation (but not a stipend),
and to pay a bench fee to the host department.

Applications for Visiting Fellowships may be submitted either by a member of the
Oxford Centre, or by the intended visitor. There is no special form for applications but they
should include the following information:
name, address, and status of applicant (in the form of a very brief curriculum
vitae
); names and addresses of collaborators in Oxford; a brief description (a page
or
two) of the proposed research; a list of any publications that have already resulted from the
area of research; an outline plan of visit/s and expenditure, with total estimated budget, other
sources of funding and the amount requested

Applications can be submitted at any time (e-mail is acceptable) to
Sally Harte (Administrative Secretary), Oxford Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience,
University
Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford (2)72497, fax:

opportunity to work with computer-based language learning materials and be introduced to
French Internet sites. The course will take place from 9.30 a.m. to 3.15 p.m.,
Monday–Thursday. The fee will be £55 for junior members of the University
and
other full-time students, £65 for members of Congregation and members of staff, and

Essentials of Academic Writing (ninth week, 17–21 June): fifteen hours; fee
£95

Writing a Research Article in English (ninth week, 17–21 June): ten hours; fee
£65

Special Course in English for Academic Visitors (8–25 July): thirty-six hours; fee

weeks. It will focus on speaking and listening skills, while revising basic grammatical
structures and developing vocabulary.

Pre-Sessional Courses (29 July–20 September): these full-time courses are designed
to
ensure that international students and academic visitors are adequately prepared to begin their
studies at Oxford and other universities.


Change in priority registration procedures for open
access
language courses 2002--3

This year the Language Centre is introducing new priority registration procedures. Those
who
are eligible for priority, primarily those needing a language course for reasons of study or
research, will be required to bring a completed priority registration form to a short interview
with a tutor in Week 0 or Week 1 of Michaelmas Term before they are accepted for a
course.
Forms will be available from 1 September and matriculated students must obtain the signature
of their tutor or supervisor as previously.

Registration for non-priority places will be the same as last year. These places will be
allocated on a random selection basis at the end of Week 1, following the initial registration
period of Monday, 14 October to Wednesday, 16 October. Registration forms may be handed
in at the Language Centre (in person only; no posted, faxed, or e-mailed registration forms
will be accepted) at any time between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on these three days and must be
checked by a member of the Language Centre staff before acceptance. Registrations received
after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, 16 October, will automatically be allocated to the waiting list
for
a course if no places are available.

The above arrangements do not apply to courses of study within the programmes of
English for Academic Study and English as a Foreign Language. Arrangements for these
programmes remain unchanged from previous years.


The Language Centre Library and independent study
area

The Library's collection of audio/video cassettes, books and computer programs covers over
100 languages. The Self-Study Area has rooms equipped with listening and viewing facilities
for individual work and computer-based learning resources. New users should aim to arrive
shortly before 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. to register and attend an orientation session. The Library
is
open 9.30 a.m.–5.30 p.m., Monday–Friday, and 10 a.m.–1.15 p.m. on

RADCLIFFE SCIENCE LIBRARY


Closure of Library on 24 July 2002

The Jackson Wing, in the Radcliffe Science Library, will be closed to staff and readers from
24 June to 9 September for rewiring and installation of the ethernet (see the
Gazette of 9 May, p. 1155).

During this period it will be necessary to shut the whole Library for one day in order
to install a new main switchboard. All power supplies will be switched off on this day and
it will therefore be impossible to work or admit readers.

The date for this one-day closure of the Radcliffe Science Library has now been fixed
for Wednesday, 24 July.

RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO)
is based in the University Offices, Wellington Square
(with satellite offices in the Medical School Offices
of the John Radcliffe Hospital and at 9 Parks Road).
The RSO is part of the Finance Division of the
University's central administration.

In connection with the acceptance of research
awards and signature of research-related contracts,
the University's Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3, provide that
`no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in
connection with any department of or under the control
of the University shall in connection with any
invention, discovery, or patent, or ... process, or
manufacture have authority to make any representations
on behalf of the University or to enter into any
contract on behalf of the University or to be
concerned in any transaction whatsoever in connection
therewith on behalf of the University except with the
express consent of Council'.

The RSO is authorised to process all applications
to outside bodies for research grants and to sign
research-related agreements on behalf of the
University. It can also provide advice for those
seeking external research funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, EU
research programmes, etc.).

Research-related contracts with industry and other
external sponsors are negotiated through the RSO. Such
contracts include agreements covering the sponsorship
of research, collaborative research, clinical trials,
services to industry, intellectual property issues,
confidentiality issues, material transfer, and
consultancy.

Information about the RSO, its publications and
administrative processes is available at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/.

Research Funding Information

The RSO produces a weekly Web-based bulletin of
funding opportunities with forthcoming deadlines for
applications, electronic Research Funding News (eRFN),
which is available to members of the University via
the internet at: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erfn/.

Non-funding research-related information is publicised
via the RSO's Web-based Bulletin Board. To receive
regular e-mails summarising the contents of both these
publications, please contact Ellen McAteer (see
contact details below).

The University also has access to various online
research funding databases and other sources of
research-related information, available from the Web
site at: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/information/

Research-related information

If you would like to receive a weekly e-mail reminder
summarising the contents of electronic Research
Funding News, and also those of the Bulletin Board,
which carries research-related news other than funding
opportunities, please e-mail
ellen.mcateer@admin.ox.ac.uk with the subject line
`join eRFN mailing list. Please note that this service
is only available to members of the University with an
`ox.ac.uk' e-mail account. Ellen McAteer (telephone:
(2)70082) is also the first point of contact for all
research funding information queries.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


Research Grant Applications

All applications for external research funding must be
endorsed by the University before they are despatched
to the sponsor, whether or not this is required
by the funding body
. In order to do this, the
University requires all applications made to funding
bodies (such as the research councils, government
departments, UK and overseas charities and
foundations, and industry) to be checked and endorsed
by the RSO on behalf of the University. The reasons
for this are to ensure that:

—the funds requested are sufficient to cover the
research being undertaken (e.g. that correct and
up-to-date salary scales have been used);

—the costing rules of the University have been
applied correctly (e.g. that the appropriate level of
indirect costs have been applied);

—the guidelines of the funding body have been
followed correctly (e.g. that the funds requested may
be used for the purpose proposed); and that

—the University would be in a position to accept
the grant should the application be successful (e.g.
that appropriate facilities are available to house the
project, or that the proposed research does not
contravene University policy).

In addition, the RSO can:

—advise on the factors which should be taken into
consideration when costing research projects;

—provide information on funding body guidelines;
and

—advise on the completion of the necessary
application and internal forms prior to submission to
the RSO's Research Grants Office (RGO).

The administrative arrangements for submitting
research funding applications are available from the
RSO's Web site at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/grants/.

In summary, these are as follows: applicants should
submit the original plus one copy of their
application, together with a completed copy of the
University's Outside Grants (OG) form, to the Research
Services Office, or, in the case of certain clinical
departments, to the RSO satellite office at the
Medical School Offices of the John Radcliffe Hospital,
leaving three clear working days for it to be
processed.
