In preparing a proposal, whether for a substantial government award or a small agreement with a private sponsor, it can be reasonably stated that the technical portion, detailing the specific nature of the research or activity, is undoubtedly the most important aspect of creating a strong submission. This does not mean, however, that the other facets of the proposal can be largely ignored. In fact, the opposite is true: With less available funding and the increasing harshness of sponsor guidelines, it is critical to devote the proper amount of time and care to each section of the proposal. Perhaps the best example of this fact is the proposal budget.

Join us on Monday, July 21, 2014, as we host a guest lecture by Benjamin Gibbs, Associate Director of Homewood Intellectual Property, who will provide an overview of Intellectual Property and provide advice as to how to address any resulting concerns that arise during your, or your faculty members’, research. We hope to see you in two weeks!
