With the buzz of interest and activity around Big Data with various federal funding agencies, in particular the National Science Foundation (https://www.nsf.gov/cise/bigdata/index.jsp), UNH faculty and other researchers have an opportunity to come together, address the hard problems around Big Data, and propose unique projects that could bring new collaborations, innovations, educational opportunities, and external funding to UNH.
If you haven’t yet written a proposal to NSF or desire a refresher/update on using the most current NSF forms/formats for everything but the Project Description, you are invited to attend this workshop by a team of presenters including Lynnette Hentges, Michael Thompson, Patti Condon, and Karen Rooney.
Presenters will cover NSF requirements and UNH resources to assist you with the preparation of:
Come and hear from Dave Arnold, serial entrepreneur and Retrieve Technologies founder, as he shares his experiences thinking outside the box and seeking novel opportunities to spur growth and innovation.
We will also hear from Erik Swartz, professor and chair of the UNH Kinesiology department and developer of Hutt®, a helmetless tackling program developed at UNH.
Together, Dave and Erik will discuss what happens when traditional academic research collides with a game-changing technology.
