Targets for Strategic Investment: What Does This Mean For Your Research?

January 30, 2019 - 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm

From government agencies to private foundations, the funding environment for research and creative discovery has never been more competitive. It’s no longer business as usual for anyone writing a funding proposal. To adapt to these changes at the institutional level, Mississippi State's Office of Research and Economic Development recently completed a comprehensive analysis of the university’s research portfolio. After a nearly yearlong review that included stakeholders from across the institution, four target areas for strategic investment that capitalize on existing core strengths and new opportunities were identified: Addressing Disparity, Bringing Autonomy to the Mainstream, Securing Our Future, and Leading in the 21st Century Economy ( What does this mean for your research and the university’s research enterprise moving forward? David Shaw, MSU's vice president for research and economic development, will discuss these targets for strategic investment in detail and guide participants toward determining good fits in one or more of these areas. By bringing together bright-minded individuals representing a broad range of perspectives, experience and expertise, this seminar will help participants explore how they can contribute to the ongoing discussion shaping the university’s commitment to “Research for the 21st Century and Beyond.” Click the link below to register for free.
