About this Event
Please join the KU Office of Research Development for a virtual town hall where we will strategize about how to better meet the needs of KU researchers for major research equipment and instrumentation.
Candan Tamerler, associate vice chancellor for research, will lead a discussion about motivations for seeking major equipment funding and how KU can better build collaborative teams before submitting grant applications.
In addition, to clarify which opportunities might be of interest to individual investigators or teams, Carol Burdsal (Director of Research Development) and Doug Bornemann (Assistant Director of Research Development) will compare and contrast a number of different equipment funding opportunities, highlighting:
Lastly, we will provide a calendar-year view of major equipment/instrumentation funding opportunities to enable KU investigators to better plan their efforts, encourage the formation of collaborative teams, and generate more-competitive equipment grant applications.
