Texas State University-San Marcos was selected by the National Science Foundation to host a day-long workshop Feb. 18 covering its mission, programs and funding opportunities. Faculty and researchers from Texas State and neighboring organizations attended the workshop.
“I am very excited that this event will give faculty from Texas State and surrounding institutions the opportunity to form relationships for future collaborations and partnership opportunities,” said Dr. Perry Moore, provost at Texas State, in his welcoming remarks. “I believe collaboration will be the key to maintaining external funding and growing the research enterprise at all of our institutions.”
More than 300 attendees, professionals in scientific fields ranging from economics to computer engineering to biology, gathered at the LBJ Student Center on campus to learn about NSF programs and the proposal review process.
According to a statement from the NSF, “It is our hope that events such as this will stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions.”
