Find Collaborators

Collaborations and partnerships are becoming increasingly important in the research world, and while often thought of as an equal relationship between two faculty members working together on a research project, it can take many forms. For example, your collaborator(s) might come from a different institution or organization, have varying stature or be of different funding status. 

An interdisciplinary project is when researchers from different disciplines work together on a project in order to see it from a different perspective or to solve problems that venture into other fields. 

Resources for finding collaborators:

  • Academic Affairs Centers and Institutes
  • pivot a database that provides a comprehensive list of worldwide funding opportunities in all disciplines, as well as tools for creating portfolios and finding collaborators
  • Networking opportunities: events, seminars and conferences outside your field
  • Office of Research Development
