Scientific research is dynamic. From funding mechanisms to technology, teams to processes, the nature of research is in a constant state of flux. To recruit and retain top talent, secure grant funding, and uphold institutional values, research institutions make considerable capital investments in providing state-of-the-art research environments.

BWBR and the University of Minnesota conducted a study to explore this very question.
