Thematic Workshops

UC campuses are organizing workshops in the thematic areas targeted in the Collaborative Research and Training Awards RFP.

Each thematic workshop addresses one area targeted in the forthcoming 2020 CRT RFP. The workshops are intended to provide a forum to discuss compelling research directions and for potential collaborators to make connections and build research teams. Attendance is open to participants from all UC campuses, the three UC national laboratories, and others. The workshops are meant to facilitate the formation of teams, but are not proposal writing venues.

Information on each workshop is provided below, and will be updated as new information is available.

Attendance at the workshops is not a requirement (or prerequisite) for submitting a proposal, and the workshop organizers reserve the right to limit attendance to the workshop based on space or budget constraints.
