Are you interested in providing input on the University’s new My Research Portal tool – a single point of entry for researchers and staff to access personalized research information and administrative applications for research?
We invite you to join staff from the Office of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development for coffee and informal conversation about conducting research at Iowa.
Please feel free to stop by at any point during the session. The last 30-45 minutes will be reserved for networking.
