Description

How
the
project
advances
one
or
more
of
the
enterprise
initiatives

our
Universities
faculty,
researchers,
staff
and
students
to
quickly
coordinate
research
teams
to
respond
funding
opportunities,
this
project
will
broadly
enhance

and
support
our
faculties
leading
edge

and
state
of
the
art
research

goals
that
are
at
the
heart
of
our
Enterprises
research
initiatives.
How
the
project
will
benefit
the
citizens
of
Arizona
By
providing
a
public
resource
to
engage
and
understand
the
research,
discovery
and
innovation
occurring
across
our
universities,
Experts
provides
a
direct
benefit
to
the
citizens
of
Arizona.
How
the
project
involves
collaboration
between
Arizonas
public
universities
The
Arizona
Public
Universities
implementation
of
Elseviers
Experts
is
clearly
a
tri--university
collaboration,
and
continued
funding
for
this
project
stands
to
further
enhance
collaboration
across
Arizonas
Public
Universities
by
enabling
the
identification
of
complimentary
capabilities
and
areas
of
research
expertise,
potentially
catalyzing
large
inter--institutional
research
initiatives.
Encouraging
matching
financial
assistance
from
private
industry
or
the
federal
government
The
Experts
system
serves
as
a
platform
for
research
sponsors
and
industry
to
better
understand
the
tremendous
talent
and
capabilities
that
exist
across
our
states
universities.
By
providing
a
comprehensive,
easily
navigated
and
public--facing
presentation
of
our
capabilities,
this
project
has
the
obvious
potential
of
attracting
new
financial
sponsorship
from
government,
private
sector
and
nonprofit
sources
--
both
foreign
and
domestic.
Also,
since
its
inception
the
Arizona
Public
Universities
implementation
of
Elseviers
Experts
has
been
a
collaboration
with
the
Arizona
Commerce
Authority
(ACA),
which
has
partnered
with
the
Arizona
Board
of
Regents
in
providing
continued
annual
subscription
support.

Measurable
Outcomes:
