When university and community organizations collaborate on research projects it not only helps researchers expand their range of data collection and project implementation, it helps build expertise that will remain as a resource in the community.
The Community Research Hub and our team of Community Research Liaisons have developed a statewide network of community partners and can assist with both short-term project needs and with developing long-term community-academic partnerships.
Resources for academic and clinical researchers:
- Recruitment assistance
- Data collection (e.g. conduct focus groups and surveys)
- TA for project design & implementation
- Facilitate introductions & meetings in Oregon communities, share local knowledge
- Develop research opportunities with community partners, letters of support for grant applications
