Join us at the third annual UI Research Services Fair!

Thursday, April 8, 2021 -- 2:00pm-4:00pm

@ Gather

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 virtually via Gather; an online platform used to congregate as you would at an in-person event.

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.  Register here by Wednesday, April 7.
