Hi Annette's dog!
clap clap clap!!
Virtual High Fives all around! :D
Working from home..... dogs help!
what. about not having any deadline? This has worked well for us at PSI
Where do administrators go to search for new opportunities for their faculty? Or do you just wait to receive emails from funders?
Also, building on Anne's question - in the time of GDPR, how can non-profit organizations contact institutions if they are unable to email them directly due to privacy restrictions?
Do institutions generally require internal review of Letters of Inquiry, or just full proposals?
How long does IRB approval normally take- particularly with human subjects (psychology). We are trying to budget our cash flow, and don't pay approved grants until IRB approval. We just had our very first round, and some took up to 6 months. - is there an average?
Are there any tips for putting together application instructions to help increase compliance?
Do you have thoughts on "start date" of research projects? We have the date we give them the news they are approved, the date the institution signs (after lots of back and forth), and then the date we get proof of IRB approval, which could be 6 mos after our approval. What makes sense as a start date, if the researcher says their research will take 12 months - 12 moths from WHEN?
Hi Stephanie! Please also talk about the importance about making sure your messaging is consistent across your various RFA-related resources (website, FAQ RFA itself, things that staff say to people, etc)
Does Case Western have a Research Development Office?
Do OSPs often face high turnover? We often find that previous OSP contacts have left the institution and run into a dead end when sending out award announcements.
We're probably going to ask for verification that the research is able to begin, before releasing checks for the next round of grants, due to COVID-19 closing labs. Any issues or things for us to know about?
How would you reach out, most effectively, to the academic community with funding opportunities that are seeking to engage PIs working in broad scientific disciplines and importantly outside of the core discipline of the funder?
Don't forget the NFRI meeting on April 23rd! https://www.healthra.org/nonprofit-funder-research-institution-partnership-nfri/
You mentioned triaging for administrative compliance, I know some organizations give applicants the chance to correct noncompliance in the submission process, in your experience do you find this is helpful? or that this may lead to further noncompliance down the road or upon initial submission in the future?
how do you ascertain that proof of concept was achieved and a project advances to phase 2. What percentage of projects fail to advance to phase two.
Anyone utilize LinkedIn groups?
What kind of marketing strategies do you use? How frequently do you update your distribution lists for email blasts and are there specific techniques you use for social media? Which free listings are you take advantage of and what would you say is a typical advertising budget for a funding opportunity?
Do you know where most applicants heard about your programs from your different marketing streams? ie: which marketing tactic seems to be most successful?
Joan - the AACR does this, we actually have a Grantee Network on LinkedIn and try to market our grants there
We also market on LinkedIn like we would on Facebook/Twitter
LinkedIn - - Great open mic discussion.
Digital Platform marketing.
Will the questions posed in this chat box be posed to the group, so we can all share our marketing techniques with each other?
Great talk, Michele! Thanks for the valuable information!
That's exactly what the Open Mic session is for! Remember to raise your hand to talk.
This is a great point counterpoint session! Thanks!!
Agree - love the information you're sharing, Carole! :)
And please don't make the deadline midnight!
Carole, thank you for sharing your efforts to increase applicant diversity. How did the applicants from underrepresented groups do in the review. Is your awardee pool as diverse as the applicant pool? Thanks!
Open Mic Topic - no deadlines...Bill.
Open Mic Topic 2 - Marketing (LinkedIn and digital Marketing)
Point and counterpoint with respect to Mark and the V foundations. Excellent ideas to discuss.
https://www.aldacenter.org/ - a great resource
How do you collect emails for distribution lists? By request, or some form of online collection?
Thanks for the LinkedIn info - we are just getting started with a private research group.
Do scientists use LinkedIn?
Perhaps Slack? We don’t use but I have seen others use
also what CRM systems work
Bill can you talk a bit about how you work with reviewers with this system?
Elizabeth - we do find that many of our grantees are on LinkedIn, though many of them don't seem to be very active
A good number of grad students and postdocs also use Researchgate to get their current work seen
The more we as funders use LinkedIn to provide information - RFAs, etc - the more researchers would be active, right?
A lot of researchers are on LinkedIn that is true. How much they check it is another story but that traffic may be increasing now.
Can everyone say what foundation they are with for those of us who don’t know everyone personally?
I can also say in my recent bioinformatics class they did encourage use of LinkedIn I suspect other classes also suggest it.
I can speak to our experience with this
Of those great awardees how productive are they? Are they doing impactful research or have you looked at that yet?
Where is that link?
I like that idea.
HUGE THANKS to everyone for this session - i learned a lot!! :)
Joan New (Autism Speaks)
could you get us that NIFRI link?
