Join us as we present the next session of the VPR Research Series with a virtual presentation led by Federal Science Partners (Michigan Tech’s Washington, DC based policy advocates) and the office of the Associate Vice President for Research Development. The session will be held on October 27 from noon to 1:00 p.m.


The National Science Foundation (NSF) has traditionally been one of Michigan Tech’s top research sponsors and the agency to which we submit the most proposals each year. The NSF has also been in the news multiple times in the last year due to plans to potentially add a new Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships directorate and increase the NSF budget. In this session, we’ll learn more about the status of these plans, explore how we can sustain the institutional momentum with the NSF, and consider ways for Michigan Tech researchers to capitalize on the new opportunities coming out of the agency. 


A Q&A session will follow the presentation for attendees to ask questions and engage with the presenters to dig deeper into specific topics of interest.
