Partnerships for Emerging Research Institutions: Report of a Workshop
National Academies Press
Constituting one-third of all U.S. institutions of higher education, emerging research institutions (ERIs) are crucial to sustaining the nation's technological competitiveness through innovation and workforce development. Many, however, are not fully engaged in sustained sponsored research. This book summarizes the discussions at a workshop that examined the barriers ERIs face in building more robust research enterprises and approaches for overcoming those barriers. The book includes a description of federal programs that focus on capacity building and institutional collaborations. The following are appended: (1) Committee Member Biographies; (2) Workshop Agenda; (3) Workshop Participants; (4) 2005 Basic Carnegie Classification: Distribution of Institutions and Enrollments; and (5) Roadmap for Emerging Research Institutions. [This book was written by th Committee on Partnerships for Emerging Research Institutions.]
