About ERA

Engineering Research Administration delivers a full array of high quality services and expertise to support the research mission of the Ohio State University. We provide oversight for the business, fiscal and human resources aspects of the OSU College of Engineering research facilities. Our area seeks to promote awareness of the quality resources and state-of-the-art research facilities available to Ohio State University and the community at large. 

As a collaborative unit, ERA partners with multiple central and school-based groups to provide expertise and deliver effective research administration services, systems, tools and processes to support faculty and staff in soliciting, securing and managing extramural project funding. These groups include the Office of Sponsored Programs and the Industry Liaison Office.
