    • Increase opportunities for student researchers to gain practical research experience by proposing, managing, and conducting independent research
    • Empower individuals and communities to actively participate in solving the problems they, and the world at large, face - through innovation and scientific exploration
    • Encourage student researchers to communicate – and directly interact - with individuals beyond the research community in order to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the broader context within which all research is done

  • 5. PLATFORM OVERVIEW ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
    • Student submits research project/budget proposal *
    • Proposal reviewed by academic faculty
    • If approved: proposal posted online
    • Proposal funded by investor(s)
    • If funded: i nvestments transferred to student
    • Student conducts research – creates/maintains Research Log
    • When completed: student publishes an informal ‘reflective summary’ through The OSSP and may elect to submit a formal manuscript to one or more scholarly journals
    • ___________________________________________
    • Student must also identify any/all faculty mentors; declare whether their proposed research will be submitted as a Basic Research, Applied Research or Non-Commercial Applied Research project; and under which license their IP and data will be released

    • Microinvestments will be provided by the broader online community (the model investor will be an individual, company, or community with an interest in the research being conducted)
    • Microinvestments will be stored in a central account if/until the total requested budget is satisfied
    • If budget is not satisfied within a pre-determined period of time; microinvestments will be refunded and the proposed research project will be removed from the website: for pilot program, the funding period will extend to the last day of the spring academic term 2011
