About Research and Partnerships

In 2014, Purdue's Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of Global Affairs merged to form the Office of Research and Partnerships.

The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP) works closely with faculty to enhance Purdue's success in attracting federal funding through support of the development of grant applications, management of contracts, and compliance with regulations.

In addition, Purdue's centers and institutes and research cores are administered through the EVPRP. Purdue has 139 university-approved centers and institutes, each developed to fill a particular need. Several large-scale interdisciplinary research centers are located in Purdue's Discovery Park. The facilities in Discovery Park are an extension of the campus research infrastructure allowing multidisciplinary groups from across campus to come together and address grand challenges and opportunities. Specialized instrumentation, equipment and facilities make up Purdue University's research cores and are available for use by faculty and partner researchers. Research core professionals also offer assistance to users with equipment, analysis and interpretation of data.

Working in close collaboration with students, faculty, colleges, departments, centers and programs, the Office of Global Partnerships serves as the key point of contact for connecting Purdue to the rest of the world, fostering and coordinating university-level partnership initiatives and programs.

The Office of Industry Partnerships connects organizations with the full breadth and depth of resources at Purdue University. The OIP works with business, faculty, staff, and students to create mutually beneficial partnerships that accelerate innovation and create lasting impact, including opportunities for research and joint programs; commercialization, industry partnerships, and licensing; co-location; recruitment; executive and online education; and sponsorships and philanthropy.
