Please join the Florida Research Development Alliance (FLoRDA) for the inaugural COLLABORATE FLoRDA interdisciplinary networking event!




FLoRDA is a statewide network dedicated to bringing Florida’s research institutions together to enhance research creativity and capacity.  COLLABORATE FLoRDA: Water is open to faculty at all 21 colleges and universities, and focuses on making introductions and building cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary connections between researchers working on water-related topics. Participants will describe themselves and their research in short, 3-minute presentations — encouraging the discovery of individual researchers’ skills, interests, and assets, as well as their values, expectations, and interest in collaboration. These short presentations are optional. Attendees are not required to present to participate in the event. Participation by university administrators, staff, and students, as well as research stakeholders throughout the state is also welcome.
