When Georgia Tech researchers engage in research beyond traditional basic research, certain building restrictions apply. Specifically, there are limitations on the type of research that can be performed in buildings that have been financed by tax-free bonds, due to IRS restrictions. As a result, the Executive Vice President for Research (EVPR) and the office of Legal Affairs and Risk Management have partnered to help navigate and track appropriate use of Georgia Tech buildings. They also facilitate coordination of how buildings are financed to ensure future space for all types of research.
Several buildings on the Georgia Tech campus have been identified as appropriate for activities that are part of an Applied Research Agreement:
- Marcus Nano
- Van Leer
