Grant Collaboration & Assistance

  • Project Coordination:  ESI can coordinate conference calls, in-person meetings or video conferencing with your colleagues for the purposes of brainstorming, proposal preparation or information sharing.
  • Support for Broader Impacts:  ESI’s mission includes a substantial outreach component through our Scientists in Resident’s Program, the Hot Science Cool Talks lecture series, and direct interactions with K-12 educators and generation of K-12 content. We can help you leverage these initiatives into your grant proposal for a powerful broader impacts statement.
  • Initiating and Facilitating Collaborations:  ESI has successfully worked with PIs in Natural Sciences, Geosciences, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Architecture, and the LBJ School, and can help you connect with researchers across disciplines to address large problems from a variety of perspectives.
  • Proposal Support:  ESI’s staff includes trained scientists with broad scientific backgrounds and significant experience writing successful grant proposals that are available to help with both written and budget components of your proposal. Note that all indirect costs received from successful proposals remain with your department or research unit.
