2011 Systems Science Grantsmanship Workshop

USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture in cooperation with University of Tennessee AgResearch
Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at 8:30 - 4:00 EDT
Knoxville, Tennessee OR Webcast live

The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program (SARE), the Specialty Crop Research Initiative (SCRI), and the Integrated Organic Program (Organic Research and Extension Initiative (OREI) and Organic Transitions (ORG)) within the National Institute of Food and Agriculture require that applicants use a systems approach to meet challenges faced by producers and consumers. The directors of these programs, in partnership with the University of Tennessee, are offering a one-day, national workshop on the preparation and management of competitively-awarded, systems-based grant applications.

Talks from the previous two years' presentations are available at:
Washington State, 2010 and Cornell, 2009

This year we will cover a number of new topics and revisit some key themes from last year with new speakers that offer perspectives and case studies on: project evaluation, systems integration, engaging stakeholders, plugging into existing communities of practice, and a review of project directors' experiences and insights.

The program will be hosted in Knoxville, and will be available in two formats, both of which are free, but REQUIRE REGISTRATION:

In-person on the UT Institute of Agriculture campus
Webcast live, and archived for post-workshop viewing
