    The Heilmeier Catechism, developed by George H. Heilmeier, is a series of nine questions originally used to evaluate proposed research programs at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This presentation will provide an overview of these questions, which can be employed to develop stronger, more competitive proposals by providing a framework for proposal organization that works for nearly all research areas and disciplines. Participants will learn how to employ these questions to create a compelling narrative and increase their chances of funding.

  3. Apr 7, 2021, 3:00pm - 4:00pm

    Join us to learn more about the nitty gritty of interdisciplinary collaborations. This series of discussions is based on the experiences of teams of researchers working on an NSF-Advancing Informal STEM Learning Project: Convergent Learning from Divergent Perspectives. In the second panel discussion, researchers who have participated in an interdisciplinary team will discuss how they have built a high-functioning team, the process of finding an advisory team from outside the university and negotiating potentially contentious topics of publications and communication.

    Over the last few years, federal funding agencies, as well as Congress, have shown increasing concern about the impact of foreign government activities on the U.S. research enterprise. There have been a number of well publicized investigations of individuals concerning their failure to disclose foreign activities or support (generically referred to as ‘Foreign Influence’).
