Partnerships and Economic Development Unit

The Partnerships and Economic Development Unit assists investigators and research centers in obtaining the resources and facilitating the collaborations necessary to successfully maintain and expand their research operations. The Unit maintains broad interactions with federal, state and other funding agencies to facilitate access to program officers and to keep the FIU research community abreast of agency initiatives and funding opportunities as soon as they become available. Additionally, the Unit fosters communication with industry and business partners to identify opportunities for collaboration and to further faculty research endeavors. In these endeavors, we coordinate with the Office of Governmental Relations with an emphasis on communication and interaction with federal research funding agencies.
