Faculty explored the university’s research priorities in greater depth, and students participated in professional development events at the biannual UNL Research Fair. The fall 2011 program included forums on university research parks and technology transfer programs sponsored by UNL, NUtech Ventures and Nebraska Innovation Campus; a panel discussion on competing for and managing National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research/Small Technology Transfer programs; a workshop on U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories; a leadership workshop for postdocs; and faculty recognition events. Featured speakers included Johney Green Jr., Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Louis Infante, Ricardo Inc.; George Fenske and John Hryn, Argonne National Laboratory; Harold Strong and Robert Calcaterra, Association of University Research Parks; and Sharon Milgram, National Institutes of Health. The spring 2012 event focused on students, including sessions on building transferable career skills, planning for graduate school, and undergraduate and graduate student poster sessions and workshops.
