In this workshop, Dr. Voevodin will cover the basics of DoD research programs and funding opportunities in fundamental and applied research. He will also discuss ways to initiate and continue DoD funded research and will highlight current UNT wide agreements with the Army and Air Force for collaborative research.Please also join us for Q&A at the end.
