Proposals for the development of Transatlantic Workshops

Transatlantic workshops are intended to facilitate new collaborations in research and education between the three universities. Further, in anticipation of a new call for larger, transatlantic research grant proposals in 2015, these workshops could serve as a platform to develop ideas for proposals for new collaborative research or educational programs. Proposals will be accepted starting March 15 and reviewed on a rolling basis until available funding has been exhausted.
