This is an alternative program to the NHERI Summer Institute.


The deadline to register is June 26, 2020

The NHERI Virtual Presentation for Early Career Faculty will be held on June 29—30, 2020. This program is for educators, engineers, and researchers who want to learn more about the Natural Hazards Engineering Research (NHERI) community, especially for early career faculty interested in learning more about NHERI resources and NSF proposal submissions. Participants will learn about:

  • The mission of the NHERI program
  • Writing a grant proposal
  • Requesting research resources within the NHERI network
  • Computational research and data management

All participants—early career professional and faculty, educators and administrators, and established professionals and faculty—are welcome to attend.

A preliminary schedule of events includes:

  • Day 1, June 29:
    • Research grant proposal writing
    • NHERI network research sites
  • Day 2, June 30:
    • Engaging with NHERI sites: individual research meetings

During the two days, participants will have opportunities to ask questions during the presentations as well as meet individually with NHERI facilities to discuss research. This creates a platform to discuss research grant proposal ideas and potential partnerships.

Name and Affiliation
