The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is focused on promoting and facilitating the awarding of funded grants and contracts to support research, educational activities, creative activities and public service through effective contract management. It participates in the development of policies, procedures and guidelines to improve the institutional infrastructure for research, and promotes a climate supportive of sponsored program activity.
The OSP provides a service-oriented culture to faculty, staff, and students and develops and interprets policies and procedures to ensure Masdar Institute’s best interests are protected in its dealings with external funders.
The OSP also provides assistance to the Human Subjects and Research Ethics Committee. This committee provides oversight of all human subjects research conducted at the Masdar Institute or conducted by Institute personnel off-campus.
