  10. 10. So what is CBN, ca 2009? We are collegial, cooperative and team-spirited What’s good for any of us is good for all of us, and What’s good for the group is good for us individually We are the after-school chess club We have no formal standing nor support from the institution We are self-organized, self-funded by member departments
  11. 11. We are a community that is Strong and Successful with outstanding individuals, departments and groups But…. We are currently not much more than the sum of our parts
  12. 12. Can we be more? Do we want to be more? What do we want to be? How can we best achieve that? CBN Strategic Planning Retreat November 21, 2009 These questions were addressed at the
  13. 13. To develop a Practical Vision -What will the CBN have in place in 5 years? Funding for neuroscience research development A funded administrative structure Robust philanthropy Large-scale collaborative grants (multi-PI, Center, etc) International prominence A formal neuroscience institute Visible and active promotion, a dynamic web presence
  14. 14. And Strategic Priorities - What are our goals? <ul><li>Acquire formal status as an Organized Research Unit (ORU), i.e. become an institute (Delgado, Fox, Morilak) </li></ul><ul><li>Provide a mechanism and environment for the promotion, development, and acquisition of large collaborative grants (Brey, Hargreaves) </li></ul><ul><li>3. Engage the membership in outreach, educational, and cross-institutional activities and initiatives (Glickman) </li></ul><ul><li>4. Establish a network of robust philanthropy (Frazer, Jimenez) </li></ul><ul><li>5. Promotion and visibility of CBN programs and members (Weiss) </li></ul>
  15. 15. Organized Research Unit (ORU) - provides support for interdisciplinary research that complements the academic goals of departments of instruction and research. <ul><li>A. Gather information and develop strategies for fulfilling our purpose and meeting UT system Board of Regents criteria: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Facilitate research and collaborations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disseminate research by meetings, conferences, other activities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strengthen graduate education </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Seek extramural funds to support research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Establish public service activities in the area of expertise </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Develop a leadership and administrative structure (and budget) that supports, facilitates and subserves all other CBN goals and priorities </li></ul>Institute : A major unit that coordinates and promotes faculty and student research on a continuing basis… across department, school or college boundaries. The unit enhances and supports broad based research efforts. The unit may also engage in public service activities stemming from its research program, within the limits of its stated objectives.
  16. 16. Promote large collaborative grants Center grants, multi-PI grants, T32, R25, big translational science Idea incubator, seed money, pre-submission review of proposals, thematic workgroups and seminars, admin support Engage membership in outreach and other professional activities BAW, Alamo chapter of SfN, school lectures, symposia, mentoring Philanthropy Endowed chairs, research endowments, work w/ development office Promotion and visibility of CBN programs and members Web site, newsletter, trainee travel awards (cite CBN affiliation in pubs!)
  17. 17. Member input, questions, discussion Reference points of contact (ie., the workgroup chairs from the steering committee) for each of the concrete strategic goals
