RISD’s Research Office provides integrated services to faculty and students seeking information and ongoing support to advance their research. From pre-award guidance and proposal preparation for external funding through post-award compliance and assessment, the Office is available to provide the appropriate level of guidance and technical support and can act as a hub to other research related resources on campus and to potential collaborative opportunities in the larger research community.  RISD’s Research Office hosts a series of events annually that offer designers and artists opportunities to identify others pursuing related topics, across disciplines and methodological approaches and provides Research Seed Labs for faculty and students seeking space and support for early-stage research collaborations.
