Collaboration Resources at Florida State University


Collaborative Collision

Collaborative Collisions are interdisciplinary networking events hosted by the Office of Research Development. These are topic driven, and have been done with large topic areas as well as more targeted areas of interest. Informational sites are created following the event so that researchers can access the information at their convenience. Have an area of interest that you believe would be good for a Collision event? Contact the ORD staff to discuss at any time.

FEAS: The Faculty Expertise and Advancement System

FEAS is a web application that contains CV information for all FSU faculty. Information includes publications, grants, educational history, self-identified keywords, and more.

FEAS can perform simple or advanced searches by keyword. FSU login required.

When to use: FEAS is best used as a starting point. Its main advantage is the ability to search the entire FSU faculty for expertise in a specific area(s).
