A tenure from a good university is generally considered to be the pinnacle of academic achievements. It is packed with so many benefits that it is easy to lose direction in one's research career post tenure.
- In the event that such a thing happens, i.e., if a professor loses interest in research after obtaining a tenure (due to health, family or whatever), what steps do universities take?
- Is there any procedure built into the functioning of universities that helps them minimise productivity loss post tenure?
- Are there incentives which universities (could) offer struggling professors?
