STIR Workshop 1

STIR Workshop 1: Constructing Foundations

January 17-19, 2009
Memorial Union, Arizona State University
Tempe, Arizona

In January 2009, the STIR project commenced with the first of several planned workshops. The 3-day workshop included a graduate student training day, preparatory and visioning exercises, discussions and presentations. Over 30 people participated in the workshop, including an international selection of senior scholars, CNS-ASU faculty, doctoral student investigators as well as several of the scientists and engineers who will host and interact with project investigators, along with graduate student note takers.

The workshop set the stage for the 3-year project by laying out the objectives of the project, methodologically preparing participating doctoral students for their comparative laboratory engagement studies, and further establishing an international network of scholars interested in understanding and strengthening the links between interdisciplinary collaborations and responsible innovation.
