Research Faculty Success Seminars Begin Wednesday

August 29, 2019

The Research and Faculty Development team has set the academic year schedule for its Faculty Success Seminars. These one-hour seminars — the first set for 12:30-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4, in IRIC 305, Moscow — focus on information to enhance the competitiveness of proposals seeking funding to support research and scholarly efforts. The first seminar will focus on the Higher Education Research Council Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission program.

Jeremy Tamsen, director for technology transfer in the Office of Research and Economic Development, will provide an overview of the HERC-IGEM program, a grant program administered by the Idaho State Board of Education. These funds are to be used as seed funding for strengthening Idaho's future by strategically investing in the development of expertise, products and services that result in state economic growth.

All seminars are open to faculty members, postdocs and graduate students and they will be recorded. The seminars are also available via Zoom.
