Research leaders recognize that whenever activity can ramp back up, it won’t be as simple as flipping a switch—instead, it will need to occur in phases and take into consideration capacity limitations. EAB recently surveyed 47 research leaders about how they’re deciding when to begin ramping research back up—and which researchers they plan on bringing back to campus first.



The 2020 University Research Forum meeting series focuses on top issues facing senior research officers and their teams. Attendees will join their peers in D.C. or Chicago for thought-provoking research, best practices, engaging breakout discussions, and more.
