RESEARCH CORE FACILITIES GUIDANCE
The Office for Research and Innovation formalized the organization and operation of extant research core facilities in 2015. We also provide a mechanism for the development of new core facilities. The guidance is available in the following document:
Research core facilities help the Office of the Vice President for Research & Innovation to fulfill its mission of advancing transformative excellence in research and innovation. Research core facilities:
- Support faculty research success by enabling particular types of research capacities, such as equipment, material, data acquisition, data analysis, consultation or expertise, and/or other service.
- Provide access to cutting edge equipment and expertise for small and large business entities.
- Create opportunities for businesses to build synergies and partnerships with UO faculty.
- Provide graduate students with access to tools, capacities, specific training, and projects.
