successfully for large, multi-institution, multi-agency
and industry money requires considerable effort
prior to the proposal writing stage. CEOA was
funded to support such efforts involving researchers
at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Research funding challenges and opportunities call for
creating a similar, but broader effort for the
rest of UCSD.
RII office, established in September of 2006
by Chancellor Marye Anne Fox, will provide
vision, leadership, and staff to help the campus
respond to complex RFPs, incubate large program
concepts, and help secure appropriate funding
for new programs. Management is co-located
with CEOA to ensure staff efficiencies.
