Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Contact us. We want you to see what our campus can offer.

Sparta Funding Proposals for Continuations

We are currently aware of an issue that has occurred in a small number of Continuations being created off of imported eURFs. These continuations are being generated without proposed budgets preventing users from updating the financial information needed for the continuation.

The support team is working with the vendor to find a solution. If you need to create a continuation, please allow as much time as possible in case this situation occurs.

We hope to have this fixed as soon as possible.
