Sustainability Institute Seminar on Interdisciplinary Grants

The Sustainability Institute invites you to "Healthy Air, Land and Water: How to Develop, Win and Execute Interdisciplinary Grants for Research." Join us as we explore the steps involved in submitting winning grants as well as what to do once the grant has been awarded.

Hosted by Healthy Air, Land and Water Research Co-Leads Jay Martin (FABE) and Linda Weavers (CEGE), this panel discussion will focus on the process involved in submitting proposals, how to find and work with collaborators and how to avoid the usual pitfalls. Pedro Alvarez from Rice University joins Ohio State's Berry Lyons and Robyn Wilson on the discussion panel.
