Research Week 2016 - Mark Your Calendars!

Sponsored Projects Administration is proud to announce the schedule for our Annual Research Week conference. Research Week 2016 takes place November 14-18 and includes more than thirty workshops, presentations, and special events all designed especially for the Ball State research community. We have expanded the conference by adding several new events to the schedule this year. 

This conference is free and open to the entire Ball State community. Registration is not required for individual events, but is offered if you would like a record of your attendance. Registration links can be found in session descriptions on the Research Week webpage. New information is being added every week, so check back often for updates!

This year we are offering several different tracks of learning opportunities for Research Week:

SPA Primer Series – Workshops and presentations about the nuts and bolts of doing research at Ball State University. Topics range from funding searches and grantsmanship 101 to making the most of reviewer comments and compliance issues.

Spotlight Events  Just want the highlights? Spotlight Events may be just what you’re looking for. These events will appeal to the broadest range of the campus audience. Anyone, no matter the discipline or level of involvement in research, will find these events of interest. Spotlight events include a keynote speech by Jennifer Blackmer, Associate Provost for Entrepreneurial Learning and Associate Professor of Theatre, and a Teach-a-Thon featuring Ted Talk style presentations from several Ball State faculty members.

Guest Speaker Sessions – Many of this year’s sessions feature speakers from outside of Sponsored Projects Administration. They will be discussing the Fulbright experience, introducing the new College of Health, helping us to understand the export control process, and presenting on many other interesting topics surrounding the external funding enterprise on campus. 

Daily Panel Discussions – Join us every day at 2 p.m. in Bracken Library 104 for a panel discussion. See Research Week schedule for topics. 

*Special Presentation*
NSF Fall Grants Conference – We will be live-streaming both days of the National Science Foundation fall grants conference on Monday, November 14 and Tuesday, November 15. Viewing locations will be the SPA Conference Room and the Schwartz Learning Pod (Bracken Library, 1st floor). Check here for conference schedule.
