UNC’s Community-Academic Grants Administration Translation (CAGAT) is an initiative designed to help improve the grants management infrastructure for community-academic partnered research through the collaborative development of guides and webinars.
This webinar will provide an introduction to the Academic Researcher’s Guide, a resource for academic researchers and their project managers interested in gaining a greater understanding of the pre-and post-award process when conducting federally-funded, community-engaged research.

The webinar will identify effective strategies for communicating during the post-award stage of the grants management process with community partners, business office staff, and research administrators. The presenters will provide tips on what information to share with community partners regarding timelines, progress and financial reporting, invoicing, cash advances, and project close-out.
