Midwinter Discussion - Partnerships for PIs: Supporting Externally Funded Researchers and Grant Writers

Saturday, January 25, 2014
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, US/Eastern

Please join the ULS Campus Administration & Leadership Discussion Group for our midwinter discussion.

Title/Description: Partnerships for PIs: Supporting Externally Funded Researchers and Grant Writers

 External funding is critical to university research yet funding awards—particularly from federal agencies—have declined and competition has increased. In addition, federal agencies have put forth new mandates on access to publicly-funded research. How are libraries working with other campus offices to support researchers and grant writers in this environment? What roles are libraries playing to assist with data management plans development or other compliance issues? What about collaborations in support of other initiatives such as technology transfer or commercialization of research? Are other issues emerging? Which models have proven successful and what can be learned from those that have not panned out?  

 Brian Rossmann, Associate Dean of the Library at Montana State University, will lead the discussion. 

 Everyone is welcome to share questions, insights, and experiences.

 Place: Philadelphia Convention Center (PCC) – 303 AB

 Date/Time: Saturday, January 25 from 3:00-4:00 p.m.
