RE:     "Collaborating With Strangers" Grant Workshops

Hey, stranger... Looking for a way to turn small talk into big ideas? "Collaborating With Strangers" Workshops are designed to connect students, faculty and researchers on campus through three-minute "speed meetings." You'll walk awa with more resources, solutions and creative ideas than you could have ever imagined.

When:   Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Where:  Library West, Third Floor InfoCommons, UF campus

Who:    UF students and faculty

Attend and apply to win a $300 micro-grant for your collaborative project! Cookies and beverages will be served. Space is limited, so please click on this link to find out more and reserve your spot: 

You are more creative than you think. The inspiration you've been looking for is right around the corner. Someone will soon help you solve an old problem. Big ideas come from one person. Bigger ideas come from two. An unexpected stranger will become your teammate. To reach your potential, you must first meet each other. You will soon meet a future collaborator. If you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far go together.
