FIND FACULTY EXPERTISE AND CONNECT TO RELEVANT UNIVERSITY RESEARCH CENTERS AND INSTITUTES
The University of Michigan's broad-based research assets - faculty expertise, state-of-the-art facilities and educational centers - provide a variety of opportunities for your company to engage in new-venture creation and organizational growth. With its research budget approaching nearly $1 billion annually, Michigan has built an international reputation for excellence in fields ranging from the life sciences and medicine to engineering and alternative energy. The Dearborn campus is especially strong in applied business, engineering, environmental, and computer-science research, and in cross-cultural studies applicable to today’s global business needs.
There are many opportunities for industry to engage with our researchers through funded research, applied research projects, participation in our research centers, or the pursuit of collaborative funding opportunities.
OFFICE OF RESEARCH & SPONSORED PROGRAMS
On the Dearborn campus, industry-sponsored research agreements are executed by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP). The office provides administrative oversight and clearances for all funded and sponsored research program and service activities in accordance with institutional and sponsor regulatory compliance.
The BEC works closely with ORSP to help you connect to the right administrator and department for your sponsored research interests. These interests generally include; disseminating request for proposals (RFPs), individual research collaborations, philanthropic research, or finding a UM-Dearborn expert to help your company develop and evaluate the latest information and technology.
