Research and Sponsored Programs

Research Roundtable is on October 23, 2014

Research Roundtable is back! The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs will hold our 2nd Research Roundtable on Thursday, October 23 from Noon until 2:00 pm in the DSC Ledbetter Assembly Hall. The event is open to any UALR faculty/staff who are interested in cross-disciplinary research, service, or education projects. The ultimate goal would be the formation of groups that would seek external funding (grants) for a project that arises out of these discussions.

The table topics and facilitators for Research Roundtable have been finalized, and we are ready for the event. Here they are:
“Sustainable Societies” — Brian Berry
“Use of 3D Technologies to Restore Historical Sites, Landscapes, and Objects” — Jeremy Lane
“Science, Technology, and Society” — Kris McAbee
“University District Collaboration” — Chris Lloyd
“STEM Education and Training” — Chris Mong
“Water Resources: Planning for the Future” — Jeff Connelly and Beth McMillan
“Successful Strategies with Funding Agencies, especially NSF” — Rolf Wigand
“Big Data (social computing)” — Robert Corwyn
“Community Engagement (racial relations and racial justice, urban and societal issues)” — David Montague
“Effective Employee Supervision and Mentoring” — Terri Beiner
“Interdisciplinary Family Resource Center” — Kelly Olson
“Big Data as it Relates to Business” — Naeem Bajwa
“Community Engagement as it Relates to Business” — Sarah Clements

Please RSVP by October 21.

RE:       Research Cluster Seed Grant Competition

Over the past year and a half, the University has been in a state of transition as we align ourselves to become “One of the Top Metropolitan, Community-Engaged, Research Universities among the 16 member states of the Southern Regional Education Board.” Today, we are announcing a seed grant competition that will encourage faculty and staff to pursue extra mural funding. This program, titled “Research Cluster Seed Grant Competition”, will seed funds to support development of faculty/staff-led multidisciplinary research clusters to bolster and expand scholarly activity. Two awards will be given in the amount of $50,000 ($25,000 per year for two years).

Guidelines and instructions are available below. We look forward to reviewing these proposals and learning about the interdisciplinary interaction that will occur as a result.

Deadline: November 14, 2014.
