Research Pathways to Impact

Research Pathways to ImpactThe Office of Research is pleased to announce the launch of Research Pathways to Impact—a suite of online programming to help researchers and innovators advance their programs and careers. The series will provide the campus research community with a platform offering regular interactions around themes of common interest (including emerging research areas), access to research development resources and guidance on best practices.

The program will offer regularly scheduled sessions with three dedicated tracks. Participants may complete all or portions of a track, as well as attend meetings from other tracks.

Grant Writing & Research Funding

This “start to finish” series equips researchers and creative practitioners with the practical knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to successfully pursue extramural funding. This track includes the Grant Writing Bootcamp, a series of highly-interactive workshops covering everything from finding funding to managing time, writing drafts, and soliciting feedback. Suitable for participants of all disciplines and skill levels, those who complete the series will generate a rough draft of the grant proposal of their choice.

Future Frontiers in Research

This series brings together diverse groups of researchers to mobilize around emerging research areas and complex problems, facilitating conversations to catalyze and leverage new collaboration opportunities.  (Previous events through the Interdisciplinary Research Catalyst: Conversations series include AI & Biomedical Imaging, Community & Citizen Science, Biophotonics, Neuroengineering, and Health & the Environment)

Research Career Accelerator

This series will provide strategies for diversifying and strengthening different aspects of research through panel discussions with UC Davis faculty and external guests.  Spotlights may include:

  • Insight into the vision and strategy of major research sponsor organizations (NIH, NSF, DoE, foundations etc.).
  • Expanding your research beyond the university through applied activities like policy briefs, community engagement and entrepreneurship.
  • Faculty perspectives on developing collaborative research programs, running successful meetings, and writing large-scale proposals
