The Office of the Vice President for Research offers a wide variety of opportunities for training in subjects related to the administration of research.

Fundamentals of Sponsored Projects Administration

The Office of Sponsored Projects Training Team has developed a new exciting training program this Fall called "Fundamentals of Sponsored Projects Administration". Please join the Pre-Award team on October 1st and the Post-Award team on October 3rd.  

“Fundamentals" will familiarize attendees with the basics of research administration at the University, University policies and processes, and also take a look at the life cycle of an award here at Brown.  In addition, some of Brown’s most experienced Research Administrators from across campus have been invited to share their first-hand knowledge and best practices.

All members of the Brown community are encouraged to attend and learn more about the Research Administration process and the offices that support faculty and their research at the University. Be on the look-out for registration in Workday Learning!
