I n our short history the Office of Research & Commercialization at UCF has experienced some monumental changes. Sponsored research funding for last year was ten times the amount just two decades before. As the university continually reaches new milestones in the caliber of work being done and the amount of projects funded, the office of Research & Commercialization has taken steps to streamline the process of partnering.

The Office is responsible for the development and pre-award administration of sponsored research activities for all UCF campuses. This includes the coordination and management of external and internal contracts and grants, interdisciplinary research programs, and inter- and intra-institutional proposals. The Office also oversees the university’s post-award audit process, facilitating accountability to sponsoring agencies.
