The OSR Profile system (RSP) is a response to the Texas Industry and Technology clusters in order to facilitate problem solving, collaboration, and technology transfer among research experts and organizations in Academia, Industry and Government. The goal of RSP is to become a synergistic marketplace to transfer knowledge, provide experts to solve problems, and expand innovation capacity in order to build new or expand existing markets, provide job growth and develop wealth.
OSR Profiles is a method to transform the culture of Academia to becoming sellers and marketers of research and ideas. The role of academia is catalyzing the transfer of knowledge and creating an environment for the rapid deployment of that knowledge by speeding the movement of ideas, innovation and information throughout the marketplace and the economy .Universities are the nation’s greatest “untapped” resources for spurring economic growth!

COMMONLY USED BUTTONS
Faculty Profile is built to allow UT Tyler faculty to create an individual web page. Aside from the Core Sections/Data Elements and or Subsections there are data elements that would be necessary for the automatic generation of Biosketches and CV's. Faculty Profiles also gives an option to include descriptive links to labs or other group web pages along with keywords eliminating the need to create separate profiles for them if not required and yet making them searchable.
Here is a sample faculty profile. The core sections for a faculty profile are presented by default. New Section can be customized and added by using the Toolbox.
Basic Details like Mailing address, Office Location, Various Descriptive URL's etc can be maintained here. Keywords are an important aspect of the profile. The Keywords constitute the meta tags that enables your profile to be searched by external search engines.
