GNSI will synchronize this talent to bring diverse yet focused solutions to broad security policy challenges. This will enable USF to secure additional grant opportunities for advanced research and publication regarding the global security environment.

GNSI will also support the Institute for Applied Engineering in attaining status as a University Affiliated Research Center (UARC). Finally, we will establish the right layers of internal and external oversight to provide near-term and longer-term strategic guidance in our organizational build-up and contributions to global and national policymaking. 

GNSI will work with academic experts and leaders at USF to identify prospective grants and build proposals to win them. We will leverage our university’s faculty talent to build cross-functional research teams aligned with the grant’s focus area. This activity will provide a cumulative effect and facilitate access to additional resources across USF’s academic landscape.
