Beginning this fall, the Division of Research and Innovation Partnerships will offer a series of workshops designed to advance research and creative activities at NIU.
Specialists from the Grants Resource Center in Washington DC will lead the first workshop. This will be an intensive, three day grant development program. Sessions will include:
how to develop research and program proposals,
how to identify the best sponsors for your project,
how to build relationships with program officers, and
what to expect in the review process with a mock peer review.
The workshop series will continue during the academic year with topics covering corporate engagement and sponsored research, protecting your intellectual property, and technology transfer and university start-ups.
