For many in higher education, budget constraints have decreased or eliminated funding for attendance at national conferences. In response, the University of Missouri, the National Association of College and University Business Officers, and the Florida High-Tech Corridor Council have arranged with key federal agencies to communicate their annual updates on research priorities and budgets via a free online webinar Oct. 29 - Nov. 2. The presentations are geared to the needs of those involved in seeking competitive support from the agencies. The format will allow for questions from participants around the nation.
The Texas Tech Research Development Team will host a webinar viewing for interested participants in Administration Building Conference Room 333a during the entire week.
