For the past many years, SFSA has visited our academic partners in Iowa and Missouri as part of a winter road trip (easiest way to sit down and discuss research objectives with our academic partners in these states). In recent years, we’ve encouraged the Research Committees to participate in this meeting, and other meetings we do with the PIs at their university. This year, to help with minimizing the travel logistics, we will meet at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA. We plan to start on Monday, March 9th at noon and run through late morning on Wednesday, March 11th. We will plan to review the research portfolio of UI with Christoph Beckermann and ISU with Frank Peters (also UNI with Jerry Thiel if he is available). We are also inviting our government partners to participate. Please let me know if you plan to attend or if you have any questions so I can send additional details.
