Invitation to a Conversation about Research
October 8, 2021
Over the last year, we’ve been learning, listening and most importantly, identifying tangible steps to remove obstacles and provide new ways to support our shared success in research. In our next Campus Conversation, please join President Maurie McInnis, Provost Paul Goldbart, Vice President for Research Rich Reeder, and newly-appointed Vice Provost for Research and Infrastructure Alfredo Fontanini for a lively conversation about what we’ve learned, what’s new, and what’s coming next as we accelerate our approach to research.
Everyone across Stony Brook University is encouraged to join, even if you don’t typically see yourself as a “researcher.” To be more competitive, innovative, and successful, we have to actively collaborate across traditional silos and increase the diversity of disciplines participating in our research portfolio. Panelists will discuss a variety of initiatives, including new support for scholarly work in the creative arts, social sciences and humanities; our “tiger teams” proactively exploring external funding sources; and important new hires to bolster research across the university. As one campus with myriad disciplines across the institution, Stony Brook is singularly placed to tackle the most complex societal and scientific challenges we face, and to lift the human spirit to new heights.
In addition to next week’s Campus Conversation, we’re launching today a new website, “Accelerating Research,” which provides details on new and upcoming resources.
We look forward to joining you and answering your questions next Friday, October 15, at 10:00 am.
To register or to submit a question, please visit the Accelerating Research website.
