Georgia Tech’s HBCU/MI Outreach Initiative Program seeks researchers to join the Georgia Tech Research Partnership Network, a database that allows Georgia Tech researchers to search for potential partners on funding proposals.
The Georgia Tech Research Partnership Network allows registered users to create a personal profile specific to their research. The network serves as a virtual space where researchers from Georgia Tech and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) can 1) share their research information; 2) effectively communicate and identify potential research partners; and 3) access a robust database of researchers from across the country that is searchable by keywords pertaining to research interest, field, degree, institute name and location.
Georgia Tech launched the HBCU/MI Outreach Initiative Program to encourage and facilitate research partnerships and interactions with HBCUs and MIs. The program identifies research expertise at HBCUs and MIs throughout the country and involves faculty from these institutions in research and proposal development efforts. The program’s vision for HBCU/MI outreach includes leveraging and strengthening previous experience with minority-serving institutions, establishing new partnerships, and generating additional support for innovative research.
