Sponsored Program Research Opportunties and University Training (SPROUT) is a network of staff at MSU involved in pre-award, post-award and compliance aspects of research administration working together to provide the latest news, training, resources and information available. SPROUT helps to coordinate the Essentials of Research Administration (ERA) program, which provides on-campus training and certification for research administrators and other support staff who have responsibilities for research proposals, grants, contracts, pre- and post-award administration and related activity at Michigan State University. This training is provided at no cost.
The next ERA Series begins in January 2015 at the MSU Henry Center (Dates TBA)
