Welcome to the Office of Research and Economic Development at the College of Engineering. As Associate Dean, my primary role is to promote and support research programs and faculty. The overall mission of the RED office is to build new bridges between faculty,external stakeholders and collaborators, help faculty find and apply for funding opportunities, boost the College’s reputation for research, and grow industry funding. We specifically aim to foster high-impact research initiatives among our faculty, and develop strong relationships with our academic, industry, and government partners. This includes not only connecting faculty teams with funding opportunities and matching industry needs with Oregon State expertise, but also assembling teams that can build new programs in emerging areas that are responsive to global challenges.
The proposal support staff, in the RED office, provides resources to assist faculty in the preparation and submission of proposals. The services provided by this office include assisting with Cayuse, Grants.gov, Fastlane, developing budgets and budget justifications, reviewing the solicitations to ensure proposal requirements are met, and serving as liaison between the PI and the Office for Sponsored Research and Award Administration, collaborators, and subcontractors.
