Generate Idea

  • Planning: The proposal process generally begins with a faculty’s wish to apply for funding to support research efforts, training/career development, or other sponsored activities.
  • Develop a Concept Paper: Do you have a project or research activity that you are hoping to further develop so that it is stronger for setting up the study or so that you can ask for funding? Using the Concept Paper questions, researchers can address those compelling questions valued by sponsors of projects in the appropriate area. For more information about concept papers please visit the Penn State College of Medicine Research Concierge services.
  • "Half baked ideas" (concept paper) workshop: this is an approach to getting feedback on your Concept Paper from faculty in different disciplines on campus. We are scheduling these at the request of faculty so contact us.
  • Proposal/Idea development, write proposal: Discuss ideas with colleagues and staff of the Office of Research and Outreach to determine the resources needed to successfully execute the project. Please schedule an appointment.
