If you are interested in learning how to write successful proposals with your collaborators, the Office of Research is hosting the panel discussion Writing Collaborative Proposals: Learning From Experience. UWM faculty panelists will share what worked – and what didn’t work in developing their research collaborations, and offer suggestions on how to identify and overcome obstacles.
