Dear Unit Administrators and Grant Managers,


SPA recently learned that NCURA’s Level II Sponsored Project Administration Workshop will be taking place in Farmington, CT March 27-29.  These workshops are very rarely offered within a driving distance from UVM.  Our research administration colleagues at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine are hosting the workshop and reached out to New England institution with an invitation to join this workshop.


The attached description provides more detail on the topics that will be covered.  This type of a workshop would benefit both central (SPA) and department research administrators/grant managers with 1-2 years of experience who are ready for intermediate topics and case studies.
