Important Reminder: To Ensure Quality and Compliance, Proposal Submission Deadlines Are Critical
Proposal preparation takes considerable time and effort. To ensure quality and compliance, all administrative items are required in their final version (placeholders for the final science are accepted) by 12 p.m. five business days before the sponsor deadline. The proposal in its final form for submission to the sponsor (including the final science) is due by 12 p.m. two business days before the sponsor deadline. Please note the five-day, two-day policy applies to ALL activity that is submitted to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for review (proposals, progress reports, letters of intent, subawards, etc.).

Research Contacts

A list of key research contacts, including staff in ORED and other units, is posted here. Send any suggestions to res-comm@rutgers.edu

Interdisciplinary Research Group Pilot Grant Program
The Office of Research and Economic Development is sponsoring a pilot program to stimulate the creation of interdisciplinary research groups around any topic that is likely to be supported by significant future federal and private funding. Existing interdisciplinary groups may also apply. ORED will provide a $50,000 grant, which must be matched, to the team submitting the strongest proposal. The funds, totaling $100,000, must be used to fund competitive awards that support collaborative interdisciplinary research projects that are designed to generate preliminary data for subsequent applications for substantial federal or private funding. For assistance in forming an interdisciplinary research group, contact the Research Development team at res-dev@rutgers.edu . Read more here .

New Research-Focused Website
The new Research Portal is designed to be a one-stop website for research-related functions. The site has four main sections: PREP, in support of early career faculty; Hot Topics, which offers funding opportunities and events; Support, which provides contact information and links; and the Grant Process, which takes faculty and staff through the steps associated with sponsored research. The Grant Process includes tutorials on how to find funding, proposal development, compliance, submission, award management, and completion. We invite you to visit the site and send feedback.
