Faculty Resources

Vice President for Research and Economic Development

Dr. Thomas McCoy

The Office of Research supports new knowledge and its dissemination by assisting faculty in their research, scholarly, and creative activities.

Office of Grants & Contracts Administration


Get assistance with the grant application process for projects funded by external sources such as government agencies, non-for-profit organizations, and for-profit companies.

ORED-supported Intramural Grants and Awards


Proposals are accepted for work that would seed new opportunities for externally funded research.  Scholarly and creative activities for which it is rare to find external sponsors are also supported through intramural grants.  Achievements in research, scholarly, and creative activities are recognized through annual awards.

Technology Transfer and Economic Development


Let us help you manage the technology transfer process for all patent, trademark, and copyright matters relating to the identification, protection, and commercialization of faculty works and inventions. We also implement UNT's intellectual property policy and develop and manage Discovery Park.
