Strategic Partnerships

An increasing number of federal agencies (e.g., NSF, NIH, etc.) and foundations are encouraging the formation of "collaborations" between units within university and between universities (external collaboration).  

  • The purpose of these collaborations is to increase the breadth of the research, i.e., partnering medical science with social science to investigate societal in addition to human impact.

  • The Office of Research Development can assist with effective team development through the creation of alliances, collaborations, and access to collective research resources.
