Join the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Large Facilities Office for the 2023 Research Infrastructure Project Management Webinar Series.  We kick off 2023 with a series of three 90-minute webinars that will focus on developing basic knowledge and skills on project management methods applied to planning and performance management of mid-scale RI projects consistent with NSF’s Research Infrastructure Guide (RIG).

The webinar content will be especially valuable to individuals and institutions interested in submitting proposals to NSF’s Mid-scale RI-1 and RI-2 programs as well as current Mid-Scale RI awardees, and all others wishing to add to their project management knowledge.

Registration is now open!

  • Part I: Mid-scale Project Planning & Management: February 28th, 2023
  • Part II: Mid-scale Project Development, Definition and Risk: March 28th, 2023
