Finding & Accessing Funding
Research is an expensive undertaking. In order to succeed, researchers depend on highly motivated students, the assistance of specialized staff, access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, and adequate operating funds.
In short, they need an environment that encourages and enables research excellence. Building and sustaining that environment depends, in large part, on external investments secured through tough, peer-review competitions.
