The University of Pennsylvania deems any project which commits a specific line of scholarly or scientific inquiry, typically documented by a statement of work and where the sponsor identifies a period of performance as a term and condition.
We liaise with Penn Law Faculty and the Office of Research Services to prepare, submit and administer applications for sponsored research.
