Benefits for users

The customized strategy is based on your research goals and interests and a built-in self-evaluation process will ensure that the investigative group start on the right track. 


Our range of services is completely free of charge and can continue until your research team is ready to apply for extramural funding.  In instances when more ongoing administrative assistance is needed to secure or to manage a program project or center grant, we can work with your team to establish a continuing relationship and, if necessary, a percentage effort commitment to the grant if continued administrative support is needed.
