Partnerships for Emerging Research Institutions: Report of a Workshop 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 Institutions 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 member research funding threshold, to discuss in a step-by-step manner specific 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.
