The SUNY College of Environment, Science and Forestry (ESF) and Syracuse University Offices of Research are pleased to co-sponsor a live webcast of the Fall 2019 NSF Grants Conference plenary sessions on Monday, November 18 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm in the Gateway Center on the ESF campus.

Select webcast sessions will cover NSF proposal preparation and merit review processes, and are aimed to assist ESF and SU faculty to ‘break in’ to the NSF funding world and new NSF program areas. All faculty with research interests in NSF program areas are encouraged to attend. There is no charge for ESF and SU faculty, and partial attendance is possible. Lunch will be provided.

To enhance networking between SUNY ESF and SU faculty, registration includes the provision of a short statement of your research interests. A booklet with attendee contact information and research interests will be provided to all participants, to promote the identification of research synergies between campuses. Please RSVP by November 12 using the form below.
