I. Adscription of research groups

1. The assignment of the research groups will be carried out according to the procedures established by the Regulation of the IRIE, the AN 12843 of the 24 day of July of 2018 by which approves the regulatory norms of the university research institutes of the University of the Balearic Islands (FOU number 468, from 21 of September of 2018) or the current regulations.

2. During the last quarter of each calendar year, IRIE will open a request period for the assignment of research groups in the different categories. Applications submitted outside this term will not be taken into account.

3. You can request the affiliation to IRIE any research group recognized by an official institution or body, which demonstrates the development of joint lines of work.

4. The Council of IRIE will issue the relevant report regarding any requesting membership. However, in order to obtain a positive evaluation, it is an indispensable condition that the research groups demonstrate, in any of the categories they request affiliation:

  • Develop lines of research in education that are within the general lines established by the Institute.
  • Demonstrate the joint work of its members in the field of education.

II. Consolidated research groups

1. The consolidated research groups represent the nucleus and the foundation of the lines of research that are being developed at IRIE and, as such, are priorities in the decision making on research, resources and scientific policies of the IRIE. High school.

2. The ones that meet the following conditions will be considered as a consolidated research group:

  • Have the accreditation of the National Agency for Evaluation and Prospection (ANEP) or of another body with competence in this matter.
  • Have at least three members.
  • Have an average number of research periods (sixteen) equal to or greater than two, according to the formula sum of sexennis of the members / number of members of the group.
  • Have living sections (sexennis) alive.
  • To prove a line of active research in education during the last five years through:
  • a prominent research activity (impact publications, projects, participation in scientific meetings, etc.);

or having carried out training activities for researchers or researchers (doctoral theses, master's degree projects, etc.);

or have carried out actions to transfer knowledge or disseminate research.

3. The research groups and, consequently, their members commit themselves to:

  • Participate actively in the research that is being developed at IRIE.
  • Keep the curriculum updated in the GREC application.
  • Provide IRIE with all the necessary data for internal and external procedures.
  • Tutoring, if appropriate, associated groups that match research lines or areas of work.
  • Make mention of participation in IRIE or, if possible, incorporate your logo into all those research and transfer activities that are carried out and that are related to the Institute.

III. Associated research groups

  1. The associated research groups represent the emerging research and are formed by teams that, given their composition, can not prove the average number of sections and the research path that allows their accreditation to be consolidated, but which are simultaneously in Disposal and manifest the will to do so in the future. These groups will be, therefore, a priority object of IRIE actions aimed at the promotion of new lines and research teams.
  2. The group members may eventually reach the groups destined to cover any of the deficiencies in the transfer or the search of the IRIE, although it is not able to comply with the 2 point.
  3. These research groups must be associated to a consolidated research group, which will be responsible for ensuring that they carry out the actions leading to their accreditation as a consolidated one.

IV. Assignment of members to consolidated research groups

1. During the last quarter of each calendar year, IRIE will open a period for the modification of the composition of the research groups and will inform the Principal Investigators or Investigators, who will be responsible for presenting the application and the files with the updated information of its members, of the people proposed for the assignment or of the changes in the internal categories.

2. The adscripts of the members to the IRIE consolidated research groups must be approved by the Council of the Institute, which will send the proposal to the Governing Council for approval and to the Investigation Committee of the UIB or to the corresponding body for your evaluation.

3. Membership of IRIE's consolidated research groups can be carried out in two categories:

a. Member Affiliation as a member implies the full participation in the tasks and lines of research of the consolidated groups and the IRIE. All those researchers and researchers who consider the research groups to be suitable, with two conditions:

  • That the sexennium average of all members is not less than 2, according to the formula sum of sexennis of the members / number of members of the group;
  • That the proposed researcher does not belong to any other research institute.

b. Collaborator Affiliation as a collaborator implies the partial participation in the tasks and lines of research of the consolidated groups and of the IRIE. All those researchers and researchers who consider the research groups appropriate and will be subdivided into two categories will be able to achieve this category:

b.1. Collaborators: all those researchers and researchers who are in the possession of an official doctoral degree will be collaborating.

b.2. Collaborators in training: all those researchers and researchers who are enrolled in an official doctoral program but who do not yet have the degree will be collaborating in training.

3. The hiring under a project, scholarship, contract or agreement of an IRIE research group does not entail the inclusion as a collaborator of the group in question. In order for the person hired to be included as such, the Researcher or Principal Investigator of the research group will have to request inclusion in accordance with the established terms and procedures.

4. IRIE will annually review that the conditions of each of the types of affiliation are met. If, due to a change in the conditions with which it was accepted by the assigned researcher or researcher, IRIE will give the period of one month to the research group to correct the situation. In the event that, after this deadline, the conditions continue to be incomplete, the process of disassociation will be carried out following the procedures established in the current regulations.
