This page was created to provide information of specific interest to the Georgia Tech research community. As the situation is rapidly evolving, this page is being updated frequently to reflect the latest institutional guidance for researchers.
In accordance with Georgia Tech's Research Continuity Plan, at this time it is expected that all researchers will adjust lab operations in response to Institute guidance about work arrangements. These adjustments should be covered in your research continuity plan. However, should you anticipate a need for extreme variation from Georgia Tech policies or practices and need permission from the Institute to implement your plans, please start with Gail Spatt in the EVPR office who will help you to navigate the necessary sign-offs. - March 16, 2020
Research Ramp Down Plan
- In accordance with Georgia Tech's Research Ramp Down Plan currently in place as of March 19, all on-campus research laboratories should be restricted to only essential activities.
- All labs seeking exception should have current plans in place with the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research (EVPR). Please contact Rob Butera in the EVPR office if those circumstances change.
