Preeminent Teams

What areas will define Purdue Engineering research in the next decade? Building Preeminent Teams is a research-centric approach to faculty hiring that asks: How would you put your research expertise and leadership skills to use to form a team (approximately 4-8 current + new faculty) to catapult your research area, or an emerging research area of potential, to international preeminence? What existing faculty expertise and infrastructure exist at Purdue and what is still needed to maximize our potential for success in this area? These investment areas are being developed through a public process akin to that where entrepreneurs pitch a proposal to venture capitalists, and is part of the College's ongoing theme of bringing characteristics of the entrepreneurial world to the research world. Criteria for the Preeminent Teams competition included:

  1. Strong Leadership in multiple dimensions, including organizational and technical leadership
  2. Promise of preeminence (being in the top 1-5)
  3. Promise of transformative impact
  4. Potential for collaboration
  5. Potential and strategies for sustainable research funding from diverse sectors
  6. Contribution to the education enterprise
  7. Contribution to innovation and entrepreneurship
  8. Leveraging existing strengths and infrastructure
