COE Shows Growth in Funded Research

The Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP) notified the college that the COE increased its total awarded research funding 102% over the previous year—from $8,111,495 in FY2014 to $16,366,828 in FY2015.

We are encouraged and excited about the efforts of COE faculty to develop new collaborations and pursue new sources of funding. Among the new collaborations are the Department of Health Outcomes and Policy, College of Medicine; Florida Museum of Natural History; Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering; and Rinker School of Construction Management, College of Design, Construction, and Planning. Some of the new sources of funding include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Procter & Gamble, and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Congratulations to COE faculty members in all schools and centers for their diligence and productivity in making this another successful fiscal year for the COE.

The OER continues to provide strategic support to COE faculty in their pursuit of funding opportunities, and together we can continue to build COE’s impressive track record for obtaining competitive grants.
