Welcome to our Organization!
In an environment of changing research funding resources, many universities have recognized that having a strong institutional knowledge base to support their research enterprise has proven to be an invaluable resource. This recognition is realized in the increasing numbers of professionals dedicated to providing research development support. These professionals perform a broad array of activities designed to facilitate individual faculty members, teams of researchers, and central research administrations in attracting extramural research funding, creating research relationships, and developing and implementing strategies that increase institutional competitiveness. We are pleased to welcome these individuals to NORDP, a professional organization specifically created to meet their interests and needs!

NORDP Professional Development Webinar
NORDP Announces Professional Development Webinar:
Presenter: Charles C. Senn
Director, Research Development Team, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Date: Thursday, December 5, 2013
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST
The Project Management Institute’s “Processes of Project Management” provide a convenient pathway to deal with complexity in proposal development.
Our goal is to provide a clear understanding of five project management processes that can be tailored to proposal development. Incorporating these processes into a systematic strategy for proposal development reduces confusion and provides welcome direction in the successful creation of large, complex proposals.
This webinar is designed to help the proposal development professional translate this strategy for managing proposal components to many different scenarios. We will discuss how the communication and organization of offered services, the tools used, and the buy-in and feedback from PIs create an atmosphere for timely and well-wrought proposals—a controllable ultimate goal in this climate of competitive research funding.
