The Office of the Vice Provost for Research seeks to create an environment that fosters the success of Harvard’s researchers. We do this in partnership with research development professionals at each of Harvard’s schools and with staff in the Office for Sponsored Programs. In addition to helping researchers identify sources of funding, compile competitive proposals, partner with other researchers at Harvard, and navigate the funding application process, we seek to identify and ease practical impediments to interdisciplinary research.
