"Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models," or "EITM" (rhymes with "item"), is the title of a new research approach for unifying formal and statistical analysis, and the topic of a summer training institute at the University of Houston directed by Jim Granato, director of the UH Hobby Center for Public Policy (HCPP) and former political science program director at the National Science Foundation.
Granato says this training institute is necessary for students and faculty who aren't getting this instruction anywhere else.
"EITM is meant to build a cumulative social and behavioral science," he said.
Scioli and Granato championed this agenda while with the NSF.

"Incorporating the Coburn language will change the game for PIs, for reviewers, and for program officers," predicts Jim Granato, head of the Hobby Center for Public Policy at the University of Houston in Texas and a former NSF program officer.

In addition to being the football P.A. announcer for the University of Houston, Jim has announced for the Houston Oilers and the Houston Texans. His resume also includes a Super Bowl. He spent 35 years as the news director of Houston Infinity Stations and was an award-winning news and sports anchor. His television credits included hosting "Sports Unlimited," a national PBS television show, and co-hosting the weekly Bum Phillips (Houston Oilers' Head Coach) Coaches Show. In 2003 he was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame. Besides announcing, Jim was a voiceover talent, lending his voice to commercials, industrials and movies. When he's not in the press box or a studio, you will find him on his ranch training and showing cutting horses.
