Faculty Research Initiative

The Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is seeking ways to expand the number and quality of research presentations related to entrepreneurship and innovation at the School of Business.  To accomplish this objective, it is now offering grants to departments and centers seeking to host an outside speaker for a research presentation related to entrepreneurship and innovation. A $1000 honorarium will be granted per speaker, designed to cover travel, hotel, and other expenses related to the visit. As many as 7 grants are available for 2017. To apply for a grant please email to rae.asselin@uconn.edu: (a) the speaker’s name, affiliation, and CV; (b) a brief description of research; and (c) the approximate date of the visit.
