Stressed about developing budgets for grant proposals? Please join the Research & Innovation Office (RIO) and the Office of Contracts and Grants (OCG) for a Budgeting 101 Workshop for externally funded research, scholarship, and creative work projects. Senior OCG staff will provide an overview of the budget process for faculty and administrators looking to understand budget basics, including the federal and university policies that guide budget development. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity for Q&A.
Early-career faculty are invited to a conversation on the Packard Foundation’s fellowships in physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, astronomy, computer science, earth science, ocean science, and all branches of engineering. Previous Packard Fellows will highlight their successful experiences and answer questions. Packard is a limited submission program, which means RIO administers an internal campus competition to determine the applicant(s) that will submit proposals to Packard. This workshop will be a great opportunity to learn what goes into a winning proposal in advance of the internal competition deadline of December 4.
Faculty are invited to learn more about the intricacies of working with private foundation sponsors. Senior staff from the Office of Advancement will provide an overview of the office’s roles in working with faculty and foundations.
Geared toward faculty with an interest in working with industry partners and/or taking an idea to commercialization, this workshop will feature subject matter experts from the Offices of Industry Collaboration (OIC) and Technology Transfer (TTO). Faculty will learn about navigating and differentiating these arenas – from identifying industry partners to understanding the university’s commercialization resources. The panel will also highlight funding opportunities including Advanced Industries Accelerator (AIA) grants and the Chancellor’s Innovation Fund, as well as incubation support for entrepreneurial activities such as Innosphere and SAGE Boulder.
RIO leadership will moderate a grantee panel discussion on this annual program, which provides seed funding for innovative and novel research, scholarly, and creative work projects. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and hear from a variety of previous grantees, all of whom have secured financial and social investment returns for the university.
Want to take your creative work to the next level? Come hear firsthand from previous humanities grantees and fellows about how they succeeded with federal and private sponsors.
