Overview of Opportunities: The Big Ones, the Complicated Ones and New Initiatives
Learn how funders use different types of opportunities to further their goals and how complex, collaborative projects can make a big impact for our institution and individual investigators. This session will review several specific upcoming opportunities and agency priorities with potential impact across colleges. This team will also provide some insight on the upcoming content planned for the remainder of the year’s seminars.

Meet the ORED Research Support Units
This session will guide listeners through MSU’s external funding support infrastructure - the various systems and resources available, from patents/licenses and compliance to proposal development. ORED research support units can help you with identifying funding sources and collaborators, leveraging institutional capacities, managing proposal preparation submissions, intellectual property, regulatory compliance and security, and corporate engagement and economic development. Each unit will have a representative to explain what they do and how they can help you make the most of your time and effort.
