Accounts at CCR are awarded only for faculty based research projects. Faculty using CCR resources are expected to acknowledge CCR support in publications, include direct funds in grant proposals for projects that require significant CCR staff time or computing resources, and include a percent credit to CCR on the Sponsored Programs Approval Form. A typical percent credit is 5%, though this can be larger for grants requiring significant CCR resources.
There is no cost for UB faculty groups to use CCR
resources. However, your queue
priority is based on the above criteria. In order to
receive a priority
boost in your jobs, you must have a funded grant that assigned
a percent credit to CCR on the approval form. Including
direct funds for hardware or staff time is highly encouraged.
Before you submit a grant, we are happy to work with you on the
budget to help ensure that we can best support your project.
Acknowledging CCR in publications and grant proposals is important because:
