Putting together a white paper can help build a team and strengthen an interdisciplinary proposal idea. RD can assist new teams in developing a relational framework that ties pieces together in a synergistic way. A white paper can be used to clearly explain your: Research goals and objectives; Research plan; Research significance; Value-added benefits and impact on an agency mission or research field; Prior results/preliminary data that validate your capacity to perform and the value of a team approach; Barriers and challenges to achieving results and your plan for overcoming them; and Payoffs from success. The white paper can be a useful tool to communicate with University leadership, sponsors, or other collaborators. RD will also help faculty identify funding opportunities that align with the white paper ideas.
RD manages the OVCR seed funding program for new innovative cross-school ideas and teams.
