I. Assignment of research groups

1. The affiliation of the research groups will be carried out following the procedures marked by the Regulation of the IRIE, the AN 12843 of the day 24 July 2018 by which approves the regulatory rule of the university institutes of investigation of the University of the Balearic Islands (FOU no. 468, of 21 September 2018) or current regulations.

2. Throughout the last quarter of each calendar year, the IRIE will open an application period for the assignment of research groups in the different categories. Applications submitted outside this period will not be considered.

3. Any research group recognized by an official institution or body that demonstrates the development of joint lines of work may apply to join the IRIE.

4. The IRIE Council will issue the relevant report on any affiliation requested. However, in order to obtain a positive evaluation, it is an indispensable condition that the research groups demonstrate, in any of the categories to which they apply for affiliation:

  • Develop lines of research in the field of 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. Consolidated research groups represent the core and foundation of the lines of research developed at the IRIE and, as such, are a priority in decision-making on research, resources and scientific policies. the Institute.


2. Those who meet the following conditions will be considered a consolidated research group:

  • Have a minimum of three members.
  • Have an average number of research sections (six years) equal to or greater than two, depending on the formula sum of sexennis of the members / number of members of the group.
  • Have living sections (sexennis) alive.
  • Accredit a line of active research in the field of education during the last five years by:

or outstanding research activity (impact publications, projects, participation in scientific meetings, etc.);

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

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


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

  • Participate actively in the research carried out at the IRIE.
  • Keep the curriculum up to date in the GREC application.
  • Provide the IRIE with all the data required for internal and external procedures.
  • Tutor, if necessary, the associated groups that coincide in lines of research or areas of work.
  • Mention the participation in the IRIE or, if possible, incorporate its logo in all those research and transfer activities that they carry 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, cannot accredit the average of sections and the research trajectory that allows their accreditation as consolidated, but that at the same time are in disposition and express a willingness to do so in the future. These groups will therefore be the priority of the IRIE's actions aimed at promoting new lines and research teams.
  2. Eventually, the groups destined to cover any of the shortcomings in the transfer or search of the IRIE will be able to reach the category of associates, despite not being able to comply with point 2.
  3. These research groups must be associated with a consolidated research group, which will be responsible for ensuring that they carry out the actions leading to their accreditation as consolidated.


IV. Assignment of members to consolidated research groups

1. Throughout the last quarter of each calendar year, the IRIE will open a period for the modification of the composition of the research groups and will inform the Principal Investigators, who will be responsible for submitting the application and the files. with up-to-date information on its members, the people proposed for affiliation or changes in the internal categories.

2. The affiliations of the members to the consolidated research groups of the IRIE must be approved by the Council of the Institute, which will send the proposal to the Governing Council for approval and to the UIB Research Commission or the corresponding body for its evaluation.

3. The affiliation of members to the consolidated research groups of the IRIE can be carried out in two categories:

a. Member. Membership implies full participation in the tasks and lines of research of the consolidated groups and the IRIE. This category will be open to all those researchers who consider research groups to be appropriate, with two conditions:

  • that the six-year 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. The affiliation as a collaborator implies the partial participation in the tasks and lines of research of the consolidated groups and the IRIE. This category will be open to all those researchers who consider the research groups to be appropriate and will be subdivided into two categories:

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

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


3. Recruitment within the framework of a project, grant, contract or agreement of an IRIE research group does not imply inclusion as a collaborator of the group in question. In order for the contracted person to be included as such, the Principal Investigator of the research group must request their inclusion in accordance with the established deadlines and procedures.

4. The IRIE will review annually that the conditions of each one of the typologies of ascription are fulfilled. If, due to a change in the conditions under which he was accepted by the attached researcher, the IRIE will give the research group a period of one month to correct the situation. In the event that, after this period, the conditions continue to be breached, the deregistration will be processed following the procedures established in the current regulations.
