Federal Research Priorities and Budgets

The Office of Sponsored Programs will provide access to a national webinar for all interested parties on campus. The webinar’s topic is federal research priorities and the directions in which federal funding agencies are moving. It will be held Monday through Wednesday, Oct. 31-Nov. 2, 2011, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. in 2711 MHRA Building.

Do you wish you knew where federal agencies are headed and how to align your funding requests to their priorities and direction? In the webinar, hear directly from personnel at the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, Office of Naval Research, Army Medical and Materiel Command, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Departments of Agriculture, Education and Energy as they share agency direction and funding priorities for the coming year.

This webinar is free and open to all faculty, staff, postdocs, and students. You are welcome to come and go between presenters. Snacks will be available at the webinar.

You may also register to watch the webinar from your desktop for $75 (check) or $80 (credit card) at this registration form.
