As part of the SGCI Phase One project some manuals, procedures and frameworks were developed to guide quality research management processes within the SGCs. Some of these manuals, procedures and frameworks include the Good Practice Guidelines on the Quality of Research Competitions; Training Manual on Engagement with the Private Sector; STI Policy Handbook; Checklists for an MoU / a partnership agreement; and several others. These existing manuals, procedures and frameworks will further be reviewed and adapted by the SGCs. The existing manuals, procedures and frameworks will all be translated to French.
In addition, the manuals, procedures and frameworks will be developed in the areas of research excellence, research ethics, data and information management and digitization of management information systems for SGC
