The second talk of the Industry and Private Partnerships Program (IP3), “How do I Maintain and Grow a Private Partnership?”, is scheduled for January 29 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm in the Great Hall of the University Club. All faculty members are invited to attend. Building on the first talk, our second talk will focus on ways to work better with partners once you have made the initial connection with an off-campus partner. These talks are part of IP3, a program designed to help faculty members increase their funding opportunities. For more information please contact Seanna-Lin Brodie-Keys (firstname.lastname@example.org). RSVPs are highly encouraged and can be sent to either Mary Cass (email@example.com) or Seanna-Lin.
Speaking will be Dr. Lesley Warren, Geography & Earth Sciences and Dr. Fred Capretta, Chemistry & Chemical Biology.
