Research Office Campus Conversations (ROCC)

Funders are interested in whether scientific breakthroughs can be accelerated through transdisciplinary Centers and shared infrastructure and therefore are creating larger funding mechanisms that can support these initiatives. How can you approach such an endeavor with humility, a strong vision, and enough organization, resilience, and institutional savvy to succeed? When is the right time? What resources are available to support these endeavors? This session is recommended for anyone who is interested in joining or leading a large-scale infrastructure or center proposal at some point in their career. Registration opens soon.

As part of International Week and in collaboration with Academic Affairs, join us to explore international research collaborations and funding. This session will include a panel of faculty members with active international research programs and some interactive engagement to spark your own pursuits in international research.  Registration opens soon.

In the spirit of open dialogue between the Research Office and the campus community, we are hosting an annual open Q&A session. VPR Irem Tumer will be joined by members of the Research Office Leadership Team to answer your questions. Submit questions in advance when you register or bring your questions about the future of the research enterprise at Oregon State to the session. We will address as many as time allows.

Panelists:  Irem Tumer, Vice President for Research and Research Office Leadership Team

Registration opens in January 2024.

Research Advancement Academy

Research Advancement Academy

The Research Advancement Academy is a professional development program for faculty from across OSU to develop research leaderships skills. The goal of the Academy is to support faculty fellows successfully lead large transdisciplinary proposals & funded research programs.

We define transdisciplinary as solutions-oriented research that engages partners across disciplines and sectors to generate interdisciplinary knowledge to address critical societal challenges.

The Academy embodies themes of solutions enterprise leadership, intellectual humility, exposing implicit truths and barriers to success, and reciprocal team and partnership practices. The program consists of a series of nine workshops in Fall and Winter terms through which 20 faculty fellows will explore evidence, mindsets, tools and practices. The workshops are followed by an opportunity for fellows to apply for seed funds to pursue their solutions research and ongoing coaching and support from the Office for Research Advancement.
