The National Science Foundation and the University of California, Davis will be holding a one-day workshop on Thursday, April 25, 2013. This workshop is primarily designed for researchers and educators less experienced in proposing to the NSF; however, more experienced proposers and NSF grantees may well find the workshop useful and informative. It is our hope that events such as this will stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions.
The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget. It will cover the NSF proposal and merit review process and NSF programs that cut across disciplines. Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates, the Office of International Science and Engineering, and the Office of Integrative Activities will make presentations on their programs and will also be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals.
The National Science Foundation is charged with keeping our nation’s science and engineering enterprise healthy, dynamic, and relevant and with advancing science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education at all levels from pre-K through postdoctoral.
The workshop will be held at the UC Davis Conference Center on the main UC Davis campus. There is a registration fee of $35 for this workshop. Breakfast, lunch, and snack will be provided. A UC Davis research showcase and networking session will follow the event.
Registration information will be provided on this site in the coming weeks.
