UVA’s Research Development team is a strategic resource for faculty pursuing external funding for large, collaborative projects. Services include identifying appropriately-scaled opportunities, managing the proposal development process, and providing advice and iterative reviews to enhance competitiveness of proposals. The team also manages the university’s selection process for limited submission opportunities, and provides research intelligence to inform decisions relevant to the research enterprise. We work with partners across Grounds and beyond to support the university’s goal of increasing the quality and quantity of externally funded research at UVA.
