Research Projects

We are pleased to know you are interested in working at STRI and we look forward to your visit

Submit a New Research Project proposal

Individuals who want to use STRI resources to conduct their own research.

A Research Proposal is a technical document that presents a research question, justifies the need for the study and includes a research plan. The proposal should be brief, but precise and well documented. Please make sure your proposal is complete before submitting.

Research Project Proposals and Permit Applications (if applicable) must be submitted at least 4 months prior the intended Research Project start date.

STRI Host/Advisor

STRI projects no longer need to have a staff scientist as advisor/host.  However, our database currently still requires this field, and it will take us a while to complete updates.  If your project does not have a staff scientist advisor/host, you may simply select the name of STRI’s deputy director, Dr. Oris Sanjur, in this field instead.

Arrange a Visit under an approved Project

Individuals who want to work on their own approved Research Project or an approved project of another researcher.

A Visit is the time you will be working at STRI.  The information you provide is use to verify the availability of space and equipment, fees, appropriate immigration procedures, and necessary permits, if applicable.
If research permits are required by the government of Panama please submit visit requests three months prior to arriving at STRI.

If no permits are required by the government of Panama, please submit your visit request at least one month before arriving at STRI to ensure the availability of the tools and resources you need.
