The first National Science Foundation Regional Grants Conference of fiscal year 2008 will be hosted by Portland State University on October 22-23, 2007, with an optional FastLane and Grants.gov workshop on October 21.
The conference is considered a must, particularly for new faculty, researchers, educators, and administrators who want to gain key insight into a wide range of important and timely issues at NSF: the state of current Grants; the proposal and award process; and current and recently updated policies and procedures.
