Annual Updates on Research Priorities and Budgets Webinar

For many in higher education, budget constraints have decreased or eliminated funding for attendance at national conferences. In response, our organizations have arranged with several key federal agencies to broadcast their annual updates on research priorities and budgets via the internet. This live webinar will be made available to your university on Monday-Wednesday, November 8-10.  The tentative agenda is as follows:
