As part of the upcoming Research Week, the Office or Research will host two fast-paced faculty-led interdisciplinary collaboration experiences. Our goal is to provide faculty the opportunity to foster valuable interdisciplinary partnerships, highlight their research, and inspire unique and innovative broader impacts across the university. We invite all faculty interested in this opportunity to come meet, mingle, and share their work.

Session Description:

  • Tuesday, October 10th, 2:30pm – 4:30pm
    Wednesday, October 11th, 10:30am-12:30pm
  • Presenters will pitch their projects to colleagues in a short 1-3 slide/5-minute overview that highlights the goals of their programs.
  • Each session will feature 20-25 different presentations, providing diverse possibilities for potential collaborations.
  • Presentations will take place during the first half of each session followed by time for presenters and attendees to mingle and exchange ideas and contact information over refreshments.
