Without question we recognize the impact that research has on technology and society. The University of Michigan continually works to support the important research activity and creative innovation that our faculty do.
Managing the business aspects of research takes a team of experts. The process of finding funding, effectively developing a proposal, ensuring compliance and electronically submitting a proposal, managing a project if awarded and closing out the project in a manner that furthers the research as well as reconciling the financial books and compliance milestones takes keen business acumen and expertise.
The Research Administrators' Toolkit, attempts to bring some of these resources to the fingertips of those doing this important work.
While faculty researchers focus on the science, those in research administration help ensure the other business processes are met: including project milestones, compliance reporting and financials.
