A half-day "bootcamp" workshop covering the fundamental aspects of research and sponsored programs at Old Dominion University will be presented twice during October.

The initial session will be Tuesday, Oct. 10, noon - 4 p.m., Hampton/Newport News Rooms, Webb Center. An identical second session will be Friday, Oct. 27, 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., Cape Charles/Isle of Wight Rooms, Webb Center

This orientation session is presented by the Office of Research, the Research Foundation, and the Office of Development. Among the presenters are Mohammad Karim, vice president for research; Elizabeth Taraski, associate vice president for development and alumni relations; and Kate Ferguson, director for research development.

The workshop's content is tailored for new faculty and faculty who are new to the research/sponsored programs process, but the session is open to any interested faculty member. Topics include: finding funding opportunities; the research infrastructure at Old Dominion; proposal development and submission; research compliance; and intellectual property and technology transfer issues.

In addition, the Office of Development will address the various services it offers faculty, such as helping faculty initiate relationships with foundations. The Research Foundation staff will focus on both pre-award activities and post-award management
