Research Collaboration & Networking

Team Science Match Maker

Team Science Match Maker is a service provided by the Office of Research Development. To use this service, please fill out the form at the link below. Our team will then schedule a one-on-one session to discuss your needs and provide you with information on potential research collaborators at the University of Memphis and other institutions where appropriate. We will then arrange an introductory session to help you get your team started, and will help build timelines around proposals as needed.

Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU) 

The Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Units (CESU) Network is a national consortium of 15 federal agencies; academic institutions; tribal, state, and local governments; nongovernmental conservation organizations; and other partners working together to support informed public trust resource stewardship. There are 17 CESUs across the nation that provide research, technical assistance, and education to federal land management, environmental, and research agencies and their partners. The partners serve the biological, physical, social, cultural, and engineering disciplines needed to address natural and cultural resource management issues at multiple scales and in an ecosystem context.

The University of Memphis is a member of the Great Rivers CESU. Each CESU has its own website and manages its own funding opportunities; however, we are eligible to collaborate and submit CESU funding proposals through all of the 17 CESU's. Access funding opportunity announcements for the Great Rivers CESU at http://greatrivers-cesu.missouri.edu/currentopportunities.shtml.

The Federal Agency Partners are: Bureau of Indian Affairs; Bureau of Land Management; Bureau of Reclamation; National Park Service; U.S. Geological Survey; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; Bureau of Ocean Energy Management; USDA Agricultural Research Service; USDA Farm Service Agency; U.S. Forest Service; Natural Resources Conservation Service; U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Civil Works; Department of Defense - Installations and Environment; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; and National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Czech Academy of Sciences

On October 25, 2018, the University of Memphis became the first university in the Unites States to sign a Research Collaboration Agreement with the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS). Comprised of 54 research institutions, the organization is responsible for leading research in the Czech Republic across a range of natural, technical, social sciences and humanities topics. The agreement will pave the way for interactions among research faculty and students in areas of mutual interest with the goal of developing high-impact projects sustained through grant funds.
