Research Forums

The Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) hosts monthly Research Forums as a requirement for Research Review Committee (RRC) proposal submission. These forums are typically held on the first Tuesday of each month, with some exceptions (see links for our deadlines and forums handout, below).

Forums will be held at our administrative offices at 440 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19130. A list of upcoming Research Forum dates can be found by downloading our deadlines and forums handout.

Starting April 7, 2020 forums will be held online via Google Meet until further notice. If you would like to submit a new proposal, please note that District offices remain closed. As a result, we are unable to receive hard-copy submissions or money orders at this time. However, we will continue to review electronic submissions for conditional approval. Final decisions will be issued once the hard copy and required payment are received.
