The first step is getting in touch with us so we can better understand your needs and goals. From there, we will help you every step of the way, up to and including working with the Office of Research Administration (ORA).
Once we are more aware of your needs, we may be in touch pro-actively to share other opportunities, including potential partnerships with companies.
If you are seeking corporate partners, our office shares responsibilities with the Business Engagement Center.
The UMass Dartmouth Institutional Partnerships team provides research and proposal development services for staff as well.
We are happy to provide basic training in seeking grants and fellowships to your graduate student groups.
