About the Research Services Fair

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. In 2023, 66 campus units registered to introduce their services to faculty, staff, and students. This year’s event will be hosted at the IMU Main Lounge.

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 vendor-style fair
  • Network with colleagues 

Target Audience:

  • Researchers of all levels (i.e., faculty, staff, post-docs, students)
  • Research Support Staff

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."
