Engineering Research Office: Proposal Support Services

Abstract:

Established in 2005, the Engineering Research Office (ERO) is a unique resource, providing pre-award concierge service to enhance the quality and success rate of extramural research proposals and reduce our faculty’s administrative burden. Developing, preparing, and submitting research proposals is a substantive and involved effort expected of TCE tenure-line faculty members. We are here to help—ERO provides custom proposal support and development services to facilitate successful proposal submissions. From brand new, first-year faculty to well-established UT-ORNL Governor’s Chairs, ERO’s experienced staff members assist TCE faculty at every step of the proposal process, from initial planning to budget development and document preparation, through submission to the funding agency.
