What We Do

The RF works with the academic and business leadership of SUNY campuses to support research and discovery through administration of sponsored projects and transfer and sharing of intellectual property for public benefit and economic growth. The RF supports SUNY with a central infrastructure of people, technology and processes that enable faculty: to write and submit grant proposals to agencies, foundations and companies; establish contracts and manage funding that is awarded to run campus-based research projects; protect and commercialize intellectual property created within those projects; and promote transparency and accountability throughout the process.
