 PARTNERSHIPS FOR EMERGING RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS September 14, 2007 The National Academies Keck Building Room 105 500 Fifth St. NW, Washington, DC 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Attendance is limited to 20 Roadmapping Workshop for Senior Academic Officers of Emerging Research Institutions This roadmapping session will be limited to a small group—first come, first served—of senior academic officers from Emerging Research Insti- tutions interested in developing an action plan for increasing their own institution’s level of research activity. On hand will be representatives from institutions that have recently surmounted the $100K/faculty mem- ber research funding threshold, to discuss in a step-by-step manner spe- cific activities that can be used to progressively increase institutional capacity. This session will be professionally facilitated so that each person leaves with an action plan tailored to his/her institution.
