are pleased to announce that the Energy and Environment Initiative website has
launched! eei.rice.edu Our goal with the site is to highlight research focus areas,
identify faculty that are experts in those areas and to connect with the
marketplace effectively. The site will be updated with information on
the research focus areas and key markets, revolving faculty interviews on
timely topics and research efforts, and updates on the activities of the
Initiative to further broadcast the Rice University brand and our research and
collaboration capabilities for the marketplace.
free to contact the Initiative team with any
tips/suggestions/feedback on the site or the Initiative in general: firstname.lastname@example.org or 713.348.4062.
The new eRA system will consist of a set of PI-centric tools to facilitate routing,submission, budget revision and post-award activities associated with sponsored project administration. These tools will be web-based and have remote, 24/7 availability on both the Windows and Apple Macintosh platforms. The core concept behind eRA is process simplification. For information about communications, projected implementation timeline, and eRA in general, visit our new blog at http://cayuse.blogs.rice.edu
