Pursuing Research Grants? Learn to Build a Research Team – October 30

If you’re serious about getting your research funded, you must understand how to form, join, or lead a research team. Collaborations of scientists from different fields are key to solving today’s research problems—and funders know it.  Come learn from our panelists about how research collaborations are launched. They will share a wealth of experience on building research teams.  Illinois Tech’s Fund Searching Services Team (FSST!) has teamed up with panelists:

Dean Harvey Kahalas, professor of management and economic development/ John and Mae Calamos Stuart School of Business Dean Endowed Chair/ executive director, Center for Strategic Competitiveness.

Patrick Corrigan, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Lewis College of Human Sciences

Thomas Irving, chair, department of biology/ director, Biophysics Collaborative Access Team (BioCAT)/ professor of biology and physics

Vedran Mimica, associate dean of research and professor, College of Architecture

The panel discussion includes lunch and will take place on Friday, October 30, 2015 from 11:00 a.m.-1 p.m. in Hermann Hall, Alumni Lounge. There will also be a question and answer period, with all four presenters as panelists.

This workshop is intended for Illinois Tech faculty members who seek grants, who want to understand how to form a research team, join a research team, or lead a research team.
