Basics of Research Administration
Research administration is comprised of many facets. The purpose of this conference is to provide participants with a broad overview of the various aspects involved in research administration. The 2.5 day intensive course will discuss different areas of research administration: finding funding, pre-award, award acceptance, compliance, technology transfer, and post-award.
The effective way to strategically manage a research organization is to empower the people on the front line. Department Research Administrators are the key to building a successful research structure and need to develop the resources and find the training to accomplish their tasks. This workshop will center on pre-award research administration, financial management of sponsored awards and building a working relationship with central administration.
Grants, Contracts and Subagreements
Understanding grants, contracts and subagreements and developing best practices for administering those award mechanisms are important concepts to consider when determining what awards to accept at your institution.
Grant Writing and Proposal Development
Successful proposal development is a multi-faceted process that requires coordination between principal investigators, funding agencies and the institutional staff and infrastructure that makes it all come together.
