The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, the Wisconsin Security Research Consortium and WiSys Technology Foundation are co-sponsoring a workshop April 9 on grant funding available from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS supports basic research in the social and behavioral sciences as well as in the physical and life sciences. Seminar participants will come from colleges, universities, industry and business throughout Northeast Wisconsin.
The DHS Broad Agency Announcement for basic research funding can be found at www.hsarpabaa.com/Solicitations/Long-Range-BAA08-01-110807.pdf. DHS supports basic research in a wide range of fields, including, but not limited to, biology, chemistry, physical science, social sciences, quantitative analysis and computer science.
This is an opportunity to network and build research collaborations as well as to learn more about grant funding available from a Federal agency not often on the academic radar. The discussion will be beneficial to those who have research interests in areas with potential homeland security implications or want to find out if their research interests have homeland security implications. Lunch and refreshments will be served. There is no fee for University faculty or staff.
Registration is required, and is available at www.wisconsintechnologycouncil.com/Events/win/index.aspx?ID=429.
