  1. The Office of Research CRC Grant Writing Workshop 2 May 2012 W. Ross Ellington, Associate VP for Research & Greenberg Professor of Biological Science

  2. Mission of the Office of Research • Encourage and facilitate our faculty’s efforts to obtain sponsored research funding • Provide all the needed support prior to (pre-award) and after (post-award) receipt of external funding • Protect and commercialize FSU’s intellectual property. • Broaden the awareness of FSU’s research and creative talents locally and beyond • Nurture and support research and creative activities across the disciplines (includes internal grant programs [$1.8M], matching for grants, support for core facilities [$300K/yr for the HPC] and start-up share for faculty hires)

  3. Why apply for external funding? • The writing of proposals is a great intellectual exercise as it provides focus and crystallizes ideas • Often catalyzes collaborations within and outside of the University • Provides peer-reviewed validation of the quality of your scholarship and recognition in the community • Provides freedom, flexibility and resources to pursue your research and dreams • Supports students- a) shortens time to degree and b) free up E&G resources to support additional students or other activities
