Fundraising and Proposal Writing	for R&D

6:30 PM18:30

Fundraising and Proposal Writing for R&D

Are you interested in building your own R&D portfolio, but don’t know how to do it? Are you tired of not getting enough funding? The success of researchers highly depends on their ability to sell their own ideas. Unfortunately, this training is not part of graduate programs and affects daily the ability of many researchers to advance in their careers. Fundraising and proposal writing is an art and a skill-set that is essential to succeed in R&D. The two sessions will prepare the attendees to write irresistible proposals. The first session will focus on ‘theory’ while the second session will focus on ‘practice.’ Please feel free to bring a solicitation or proposal for review and feedback.

ECUSA en el Wisconsin Science Festival

Our Spanish ECUSA members belong to different science disciplines. So we are planning to distribute different tasks through the two preferred days. During the mornings and with the presence of kids, we will display a hand-on exploration station where kids will be able to isolate DNA from banana, inflate a balloon with a chemical reaction, and play with non-Newtonian fluids. During the afternoon we will engage adult public to talk about brewing yeasts, Formula 1 engines and how the brain works. We will allow adults to smell different yeast species to appreciate microbial diversity, and we will provide pictures and information about science performed by our ECUSA members in the Midwest, especially in Wisconsin. Our outreach will be performed in English and if requested in Spanish as well. We are also interested in targeting the latino community in Wisconsin and this will be a great opportunity to engage underrepresented groups of people
