Systems Science Grantsmanship Workshop
2011 Systems Science Grantsmanship Workshop
Offered by The University of Tennessee in Partnership with NIFA
Tuesday, August 9, 2011, 8:30 AM, Knoxville, Tennessee
On August 9, 2011, NIFA National Program Leaders, in partnership with The University of Tennessee-Knoxville, are offering the third in a series of 1-day national workshops covering the preparation and management of competitively awarded, systems-based grant applications.
The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, the Specialty Crop Research Initiative, the Organic Research and Extension Initiative, and the Organic Transitions Program all solicit applications that use a systems approach and transdisciplinary teams to meet challenges faced by producers and consumers.
This year's program will cover a number of new topics and revisit some key themes. New speakers will offer unique perspectives and dialog (via panel discussions) on stakeholder engagement, systems thinking, project evaluation, plugging in to eXtension CoPs, and project directorship. Audience participation will include both on-site and remote attendees.
The program will be hosted live on The University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville TN; however, participants have the option of viewing a live webcast, or accessing an archived version for post-workshop viewing. Registration is free, but advance sign-up is strongly encouraged to aid planning.
