The Office of Research Development is hosting Montana State University’s first-ever Research Development Day on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023. Research Development Day will highlight the current state of the research funding landscape; foster meaningful connections between MSU researchers, practitioners, sponsors, and industry representatives; and enhance the competitiveness, impact, and growth of MSU’s research enterprise.  
Research Development Day will bring together ~150 individuals from across the University’s colleges, extension services, and dozens of research centers and institutes. In addition to a keynote speech from the Head of NSF’s Office of Integrative Activities, Dr. Alicia Knoedler, the event will feature informational sessions and individual consultations with program officers from a variety of major sponsors. It will also include facilitated discussions with industry representatives, a variety of expert workshops and panels, poster sessions, social mixers, and more. Planned workshops and panels range from “Broader Impacts 101 & Forming a Research Impact Identity” to “Looking Beyond Traditional Grants for Research Success.” 

 Any faculty, postdoc, or student is welcome to attend, though space is limited. Registration for this free in-person event will open soon. Sign-ups with program officers, and the final agenda will also be provided in coming weeks.
