NORDP Launches New Service: PEERD

Are you thinking about implementing the research development model at your institution? Does your institution have a strategic plan to move ahead? Is your RD operation the most effective it can be? Are you “right resourced”?

If you, or anyone at your institution, is asking those questions, you may want to consider contacting PEERD!

NORDP is launching a service, Program for External Evaluation of Research Development (PEERD), to provide assessment of an institution’s RD needs by a team of experienced RD professionals.  PEERD is designed to provide client organizations an external evaluation of their research development operations by a team of qualified NORDP members from peer institutions.

If you’re interested in being a PEERD consultant, we’re looking for experienced leaders with review, evaluation, and/or strategic planning experience. NORDP members who meet the experience criteria are welcome to apply. Memberswho have their own consulting firms, or who are not prohibited by other firms’ contractual terms or potential conflicts, are eligible to serve as reviewers for PEERD.  An on-line application will be available after the Denver conference.

To learn more about the eligibility criteria, selection process, and timeline for PEERD consultants, or to learn how to engage the service for your university, visit our poster during the Idea Showcase on Tuesday, May 9 from 5:30 – 6:30 pm in the Centennial and Interlocken Foyers.

We look forward to seeing you next week in Denver!

Best regards,
