Multidisciplinary Collaborations and Strategic Research Advancement

One of the goals of the Research Development Team is to increase collaboration between researchers in order to leverage our campus research strengths and partnerships. By bringing together researchers from across TTU, statewide, nationally and internationally, RDT fosters new and innovative initiatives that increase competitiveness and move TTU to the forefront of top research universities. To accomplish this goal, RDT:

  • Facilitates collaborations between research groups to increase submission of multi- and inter-disciplinary proposals valued at $1 million or more, or new faculty and first time submitters.
  • Coordinates catalytic research events, seminars and workshops to help expand the knowledge base, develop partnerships and increase cooperation and collaboration.
  • Assists in developing new on-campus research working groups.
