Step 1 of 2: Join research4impact

Create a profile. Provide some biographical information, an overview of the work you’ve done in the past, and an overview of your current goals and interests. You can edit your profile as often as you’d like.

Step 2 of 2: Use research4impact

Once you have a profile there are two main ways to connect with others:

--Search the full set of profiles to find others that share your interests. Then reach out and introduce yourself.

--Post an announcement to r4i members. Whereas profiles contain an overview of you and your work, announcements contain project-specific and/or time-sensitive collaboration opportunities as they arise. Each week announcements are compiled and then sent via one large email to all r4i users.

For tips about starting new collaborations, see the statement of research principles at the bottom of this page. Also view the presentation slides from r4i's in-person workshops.

One Final Piece: Our Executive Director and The Board of Matchmakers

We encourage r4i members to contact each other as much as possible. Yet we also recognize that sometimes people want a bit more information and help finding collaborators than what appears on the site. To help grease the wheels of collaboration we now have an Executive Director and a Board of Matchmakers that are here to help.

We are thrilled to announce that our inaugural Executive Director is Tiffany Davenport!

She will work with the Board of Matchmakers to help people find ideal matches. As r4i's membership expands we'll expand the board so that it matches members' interests as much as possible.

Board of Matchmakers (as of August 2017)
