October 13 - October 16

Event Categories: ,

The University of Nebraska will host the 28th NSF EPSCoR National Conference Oct. 13-16 in Omaha, Nebraska.

The national EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) Conference is proposed for October 13–16, 2024. It will engage audiences from different sectors, disciplines and jurisdictions, including state legislators, congressional representatives, federal employees, jurisdictional project directors and administrators, as well as members of EPSCoR state committees, scientists, junior faculty members, and students.

EPSCoR aims to increase research capacity, strengthen STEM education, and advance science and engineering in jurisdictions that have historically received limited funding from NSF. The 28th NSF EPSCoR National Conference will support this overall mission with its theme, Connect and Collaborate to Keep Science Flowing.

About the NSF EPSCoR National Conference

The Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) holds national conferences that bring representatives from all EPSCoR jurisdictions together to discuss strategies to promote EPSCoR goals of building STEM research and education capacity to increase their national competitiveness. This biennial event is a forum for EPSCoR project directors and participants to discuss opportunities and challenges at the local, state, national, and international levels and how EPSCoR efforts can collectively contribute to the advancement of science and engineering research and education. This meeting also showcases results from projects funded by NSF EPSCoR.

Traditionally, workshops and information sessions will focus on broadening community participation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), economic development, commercialization, best practices for virtual delivery of curricular content to underrepresented communities, and more.

More information on the national conference will be available on the Nebraska EPSCoR website closer to the event.
