Research productivity webinar: lead your research program with a business mindset

Developing a successful research program takes more than  technical expertise; like a business, successful research programs need strong leaders with good management and communication skills. The Carl R. Ice College of Engineering and K-State Innovation Partners invite university research faculty in all disciplines to participate in "Research Productivity: Lead your research program with a business mindset," a one-hour virtual event at 3 p.m. Sept. 29. 

With  funding agencies supporting more  transdisciplinary, collaborative  research, it is becoming essential for faculty to develop  interdisciplinary  research teams for  continued  success.  Regardless of your research program size  and style,  using a business mindset to  make decisions and manage  your  program  enhances your  likelihood for  success!

During this webinar, participants will hear from College of Engineering Dean Matt O'Keefe and  the following faculty panel of K-Staters  from four colleges who have cultivated research teams and adapted a business  mindset approach in their successful  interdisciplinary  research programs.
