Booz Allen Hamilton Distinguished Colloquium Series - 09/12/2014 - Dr. Lawrence Schuette, Office of Naval Research

"Sponsorship of Scientific Research in a Competitive Environment" In this talk I will explain the various sponsorship models used by the National Science Foundation, Army Research Office, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the Office of Naval Research. Each organization has a different purpose and funding model: understanding these will assist in maximizing the effectiveness of Principal Investigator engagement. I will also discuss how to "open the door" to funding and share successful strategies. Finally, I will provide an overview of ONR, speak to current interests at ONR and funding opportunities that will be available in Fiscal Year 2015.
