Event description

Description

The Idaho NSF EPSCoR Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for participants and collaborators in Idaho’s National Science Foundation (NSF) EPSCoR Track-1 Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) project to connect, communicate, and coordinate our research and education activities related to Idaho’s program on Genes to Environment: Modeling, Mechanisms, and Mapping (GEM3). The program is based on strong collaboration among Idaho’s public universities and participation of Idaho’s 2-year and 4-year colleges. Our work is intended to support lasting improvements in our state’s academic research infrastructure and education capacity in areas that support the state and university Science and Technology Strategic Plans.

Registration for this meeting is free to participants and collaborators who are actively involved in the program. If you are unsure about participation in this meeting, please contact Rick Schumaker (rshumak@uidaho.edu).

Please register ASAP, but no later than November 22 for this important event.
