Upcoming OSU Water Events
Monday, December 20, 4-5 pm, Richardson 107 - All-Campus Water Faculty Meeting - All OSU water faculty are encouraged to attend an important 1-hr meeting where the IWW Director and staff will update faculty and researchers on the new Indirect Cost recovery model for IWW-assisted grants. PIs using IWW’s grant assistance service now have the opportunity of some indirect cost return. Come and hear about this new model and how you can benefit from our service. We’ll serve eggnog and cookies and also seek your feedback on IWW’s other new efforts with communications (including the weekly H2OSU) and the new Collaboratory isotope facilities.
