Upcoming Events

Coffee Break. Have a cup of coffee, grab a cookie and join a discussion about a specific area of grant proposal development. Because they are so specific and decided to involve plenty of questions and answers, these hour-long sessions are designed for all levels of grant writing.

Tech On Tap. No reservations required, no admittance or fee, bring your curiosity and an open mind! UT Dallas sponsors Tech On Tap as an outreach opportunity for interested members of the community to come hear the leading experts in a variety of fields discuss their programs in the non-stuffy atmosphere of a pub.

Drinks are on you. Knowledge is on us. Generally a 20-30 minute presentation followed by chitchat and conversation, the attendees may enjoy dinner and hoist a beer or two without upsetting the presenter!

OSP Training. The Office of Research is dedicated to providing faculty and staff guidance on the essentials of Research Administration. This series will take faculty and staff through the essential components of sponsored projects and the steps needed to administer research at UTD - from finding funding opportunities to closing out grant accounts.

Online registration at Research Explorer is required.
