NSF-Supported Innovation Workshop hosted by Union College

The NSF just awarded Union College a conference grant focused on Supporting Undergraduate Institutions in Technology and Entrepreneurship Development (SUITED).  One of the goals is to introduce our researchers to all of the expanded opportunities that now exist within the new NSF TIP (Technology, Innovation and Partnerships) Directorate.

Please go to https://www.union.edu/suited and register by December 12, 2022.  Part 1 is free and open to all, but space is limited.  Teams for the in person part 2 and part 3 sessions will be selected from the part 1 participants.

Moving Research from Lab to Marketplace

What: A gathering at which science and engineering faculty and administrators from primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) engage with representatives from funding agencies and entrepreneurs, with the aim of identifying and surmounting barriers to broader participation in Deep Tech Development, Technology Transfer and Entrepreneurship at PUIs.

Why: Technology Innovation and Partnership (TIP) activities can support your core academic research, education, and broader societal missions.  Learn, from those who have done it, how to overcome institutional challenges to participating in and obtaining support for TIP activities. Share your successes, receive feedback on plans, and build a like-minded community of interest around supporting TIP at undergraduate institutions.  Provide feedback to NSF to help shape their policies and programs to better address the particular needs of and barriers faced by PUI’s in participating in and obtaining support for TIP activities.

Who: Individuals or teams of science and engineering faculty, academic deans, grants and tech transfer office administrators, and other research leaders at PUIs who are interested in any or all of the above.

When: Part 1, January 12 and 13 (via Zoom, 12 to 5 PM Eastern US).  Parts 2 & 3 mid- to late 2023.
