University Partners

We partner with a number of Offices around the University including:

  • The Limited Submissions office in the The Office of Research Initiatives and Development (ORID). The office coordinates submission to funding agencies that will only allow one submission per institution. Our office works closely with ORID on Limited Submission Opportunities for Corporate and Foundation funders.
  • Sponsored Project Administration (SPA), a University-wide office that serves as a central research administration resource for the research community at Columbia University. Our office works closely with SPA on approval and sign off of proposals, award negotiations and set up, award management and reporting.
  • The Industry Relations Group (IRG) in Columbia Technology Ventures, which collaborates with corporate-facing colleagues across the university to develop corporate and industry partnerships.
