Campus Conversation on Accelerating Research
Stony Brook University President Maurie McInnis, Executive Vice President and Provost Paul Goldbart, Vice President for Research Richard Reeder and Vice Provost for Research and Infrastructure Alfredo Fontanini led a Campus Conversation on Accelerating Research on Friday, Oct. 15 , 2021. The panel discussed how Stony Brook is broadening its research mission, providing more support, creating opportunities for researchers beyond the STEM disciplines, and fostering more effective collaboration on our campuses and with partners in our community.
CREATING ECONOMIC GROWTH AND OPPORTUNITY
Stony Brook is committed to conducting pioneering research that solves critical challenges, enhances the well being of humanity, and drives economic growth and opportunity in the State of New York and beyond. SBU is proactively identifying and pursuing funding opportunities and seeking out new funding sources to support research that enhances our community, region and country.
BROADENING OUR RESEARCH PORTFOLIO
Stony Brook will be more competitive, innovative, and successful when we collaborate across traditional silos and increase the diversity of disciplines actively participating in our research portfolio. We’re working to create more avenues for participation and success among faculty studying and working within and outside STEM fields.
REMOVING BARRIERS TO SUCCESS
Sometimes, we inadvertently create obstacles to our own success. Over the last year, we’ve been committed to not just identifying but removing unnecessary barriers that slow our research progress so that we can truly unleash our potential.
