Ensuring Research Resilience Through Programmatic and Facilities Alignment

Published 2019 SCUP Annual Conference | July 2019
Presented by Eric Boatman, Barbara J. Kranz, Andrew Labov, Avery Miller, James W. Simeo

Interdisciplinary scientific research is the new normal in academia. Campus planning for interdisciplinary research requires special tools and analytics that align the needs of increasingly diverse research environments with existing facilities capabilities and new characterizations of research neighborhoods. To remain relevant within the world-wide scientific community, campuses must free research space planning from traditional boundaries in order to promote collaborative synergies. This session will introduce new analytical assessment tools, organizational principles, and planning strategies supporting interdisciplinary research. Come learn how to create an open-ended, actionable, and living planning document that ensures long-term relevance and viability.
