This is a required workshop for the new certificate in Research Development, intended for individuals with three years or fewer in research administration or more experienced research administrators transitioning to roles in research development. Research development provides strategic, proactive, catalytic, and capacity-building activities that serve the research enterprise at large by supporting individual faculty members, teams of researchers, and central research administrations in attracting extramural research funding, fostering relationships, and developing and implementing strategies that increase institutional competitiveness and innovation.
To give a big and broad picture of research development, topics will include the role of the research development professional, how research development complements and differs from research administration, developing individual and institutional grant capacity, understanding and applying institutional strategies to enhance the overall research portfolio, orienting investigators to the research environment and research development, an overview of proposal components and the agency review process and providing leadership and support for large-scale, collaborative proposals.
- Describe the approach and components of research development for the institution.
- Apply these strategies in the participant's home institution to increase grant capacity and proposal success.
