The Research Services Fair (RSF) is a vendor-style fair that provides an opportunity for researchers to learn about campus resources and services available for their research and scholarship activities. Over the past two RSFs, over 60 campus units have introduced their services to approximately 400 faculty, staff, and students. This year’s event will be hosted at Hancher Auditorium.

Fair attendees will:

  • Learn about campus’s cutting-edge instruments and technology as well as many other services available in support of funding applications and research programs.
  • Interact with centers, institutes, core facilities, and other service units in a virtual vendor-style fair.

Target Audience:

Researchers of all levels (i.e., faculty, staff, post-docs, students) and research support staff.


Registration is required. Registration coming soon!

Researchers at the University of Iowa in action

From attendees:

"I really enjoyed this, it was a great opportunity to touch base with and learn about a lot of the services on campus."

"It was fantastic! Really helpful to get to know more about the research services at UI, and the opportunity to network."

From participating units:

"Our unit representatives met researchers that we would otherwise not encounter ... and got to chat with former collaborators as well. We expect this fair to be the catalyst for many opportunities in the future."

"Made some good connections and more people are now aware of what we do. Very nice event."
