All requests will be routed through the Proposal Development Request webform (NetID required for submissions). Requestors will receive a confirmation email after submitting the form. We will follow up with an email if more information is needed to evaluate the request. Please submit requests as early as possible.
Please note that the RDS team will be out of office with intermittent email access from July 19-30. Communications may be delayed during this time period. Thank you!
Requests for support will be evaluated by the Research Development Services team on a regular basis. Investigators should expect to receive a response from RDS within 3-5 days. Due to limited resources, not all requests can be supported at this time. Factors such as RDS team capacity, other potential support resources, project scope and timeline, and strategic imperatives will be considered during evaluation. Hanover Research and other external partners/consultants will be used to extend the capacity of the RDS team as needed. RDS services are supported by the OVPR and are open to all UConn/UConn Health free of charge.
Priority will be given to:
- Proposals that align with institutional, school/college, and OVPR priorities
- Large, complex, and multidisciplinary proposals
