Fall 2010 Faculty Outreach & Networking Events (FONE)

September 17, 2010 at 3:08 pm Leave a comment

We are again hosting our Faculty Outreach & Networking Events (FONE) this fall.  Our topic for this semester: Raising Your Research Profile.  We made one significant change this semester–we decided to open the events to everyone on campus:  faculty, administrators, staff, graduate students, and postdocs.  The more the merrier!  Plus, we were able to take advantage of the centralized training registration system for the Brown community.

We had our first successful session of the term this week.  Amy gave a talk on Community of Science (COS), the University’s subscription-based funding opportunities database.   Everyone was interested in the topic and asked great questions.  We were also excited to see everyone networking and exchanging email addresses.  Specifically, it was great to have staff members (department managers, etc) there.  Finding research support is not only the responsibility of faculty (the researcher), and we realized how important it is to include everyone and make sure the information reaches each part of the, in this case, grant-seeking process.
