The Office of Research Development strives to strengthen research and scholarship activities at FIU by offering an array of support services tailored to the identified needs of research faculty. For faculty interested in securing external funding, the staff identifies grant opportunities and assists with proposal preparation. To foster multidisciplinary collaboration and team science, the Office of Research and Economic Development stimulates professional interest areas and networking groups. A robust professional research development program, offered in partnership with FIU’s Faculty Mentoring Program, provides FIU faculty with the tools needed to hone their skills as researchers, and with guidance, that aligns their research efforts with their departments’ requirements for tenure and promotion. On-line resources are available to provide assistance to investigators at all stages of their research careers. To achieve these goals, The Office of Research Development provides the services outlined on this page.
