The Symposium for Research Administrators is an exciting opportunity to establish connections and expand the knowledge of research administration at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This year, symposium attendees will be offered a variety of in-person concurrent sessions to choose from depending on their interests. We will also hold discussion groups and roundtables to dive more deeply into research administration topics. Throughout the day we will touch on issues that involve multiple stages of the award life cycle. The Symposium aims to strengthen collaboration through shared learning experiences and conversation. We hope you enjoy the variety of topics, speakers, and networking opportunities!
