Mark Your Calendars for the Next RAFT Forum UFIRST Awards

The RAFT Forum returns next month with a new lineup of topics of interest to the sponsored programs community. Join us on April 14th, from 2:30 4:30 p.m. in HRS Building, Room 120, for a session providing updates and answers to your questions about UFIRST Awards.  Representatives from the Division of Sponsored Programs will be on-hand to answer your questions.

After the meeting, we invite you to join us for the first RAFT social mixer at the First Magnitude Brewery. This will be a fun and informal way to network with your colleagues in research administration. The First Magnitude Brewery is located at 1220 SE Veitch Street, just south of the Gainesville downtown area.

The Research Administration & Financials Training (RAFT) forum is designed to create a bridge between the core offices and the UF research community. These sessions cover special topics of interest, while also providing an open channel for solutions, contacts, and information targeted to the needs of UF sponsored programs. No registration is required. If you are not able to attend in person, join us using the live meeting link just below.
