This is the second Research Roundtable bringing together researchers interested in transforming the built environment from a major carbon emitter to net carbon sink through an interdisciplinary approach.
Have you ever received this feedback? Talking with a program officer can have a powerful impact on a researcher's thinking. From re-sharing the research design to reconsidering where the proposal should be submitted, or if it even should be submitted at all. Preproposal communication with program officers can help avoid a distressing outcome, and perhaps protect your most precious resource – your time. Talking with researchers is one of the most important responsibilities assigned to program officers, so you should help them do their jobs!
Cities are hotspots of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. Achieving livable climate scenarios in the future depends on cities reducing carbon emissions today. Complex societal problems, such as reducing emissions and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, can be effectively addressed only through interdisciplinary research that identifies new approaches and opportunities.
This Research Roundtable will provide an opportunity to foster new collaboration and research teams across campus around the theme of Disability Research. Researchers in the following Disability sub-fields are encouraged to attend.
The academic community recognizes an increasing need to foster interdisciplinary research to address problems and questions that span more than a single field of knowledge. The National Science Foundation has issued a call for proposals regarding Growing Convergence Research. The deadline for these proposals is February 20, 2020. Please join Dr. Ken Smith and Dr. Rick Forster for an information and ideas exchange.
