Research "Week" to Focus on Research Support and Collaboration
Cal Poly researchers now have a “week” for them! The Office of Research and Economic Development is hosting a series of events on October 23 and 24 to provide support and enhance collaboration for research at Cal Poly.
Plug Into Research Support will give faculty, staff, and student researchers the opportunity to meet with research administration, grants development, and sponsored programs staff to learn about support programs, funding opportunities, compliance processes, and intellectual property protection. While getting their questions answered, attendees can enter a drawing to win an iPad and other prizes! This resource fair-style event will be held in the Bonderson High Bay, 197-107, on Tuesday, October 23, from 10:00am to 1:00pm, and refreshments will be provided.
Also on October 23 from 3:10pm to 5:00pm, Research Lightning Talks will feature brief 4-minute presentations by 10 research faculty looking for collaborators from departments all over campus. The talks will be followed by a networking session with beverages and hors d’ouevres.
Researchers seeking information on how to get started with funded research or improve rejected proposals should attend the Grants 2.0 Workshop on October 24 from 8:10am to 10:00am. Representatives from the Office of Research and Economic Development and Hanover Research will present information on grant administration, funders and funding, and proposal development.
Both the Research Lightning Talks and the Grants 2.0 Workshop will be held in the Advanced Technology Lab, ATL Bldg. 7. More information is available on the website links provided above or by calling ext. 6-5153.
