Event description


We'd love for you to attend our new, live webinar series, called Getting Started in Sponsored Research. The goal is to help folks better understand the nature and function of the sponsored research enterprise. We’ll offer this series in six short webinars. While we encourage people to take all the sessions in sequential order, it isn’t a requirement. At the end of each 30-minute session, we’ll hold live office hours for questions and feedback.

The Getting Started in Sponsored Research webinar series is ideal for faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs and residents, community members, patients and others who want to see the 30,000-foot view of sponsored research. This live webinar series is offered at no cost.

In this session ... we will talk about the first half of the lifecycle of a sponsored research project, including the research development and finding funding phase and proposal development, approval and submission phase. This bird’s eye view will include some of the important considerations when selecting a funding opportunity as well as what you should look for when reviewing proposal guidelines. We’ll talk about the main components of grants and contracts and the requirements necessary for institutional approval. Finally, we will review some of the important considerations in the peer review process.

Can't attend this live webinar? Don't worry, we will offer this webinar again. In the interim, join our mailing list to find out about our other online sessions.
