UCC Consultancy Policy
UCC supports members of academic staff to engage in external Consultancy activities in order to expand and maintain their professional competence, keep abreast of developments and innovation in business and the professions, and to support the Irish economy and enhance the reputation of the University by sharing the university’s scientific and academic knowledge with the business community and the professions.
However, while the University recognises the benefit of such activities, it is also committed to ensuring that they are conducted in a proper manner consistent with the principles of openness, trust, and free enquiry that are fundamental to academic freedom, and the autonomy and well-being of the University and the responsible management of the University's business.
The POLICY ON UNIVERSITY CONSULTANCY, DIRECTORSHIPS AND OTHER REMUNERATED ACADEMIC ACTIVITY EXTERNAL TO UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CORK (UCC) outlines how consultancy activity should be conducted.
This policy applies to all full-time permanent and temporary academic staff of the University. The policy applies pro rata to part-time academic staff.
