Facilitating the University-Wide Research Response to Disasters: The Role of a University Research Office
Lee, Matthew R.; Berthelot, Ashley
Research Management Review, v19 n1 Spr-Sum 2012
On occasion, colleges and universities are confronted with natural or technological disasters that affect their communities or their constituents throughout the state. While these situations demand a coordinated institutional research response, administration and management of these endeavors are extremely complex. In this paper we discuss the case of Louisiana State University and the measures implemented by its Office of Research and Economic Development in response to the Deepwater Horizon drilling disaster of 2010. Challenges that surfaced and lessons learned are described, too.
