NSF ERC Planning Workshop
All collaborators of the NSF ERC for Connected Eldercare Planning Project are invited to the 2nd Planning Workshop on
June 15, 2022
8:00 am – 4:15 pm
This is an In-Person Meeting with online participation option. Towards the submission of a preproposal due October 2022, we will discuss key components of our ERC proposal. The objectives of the Workshop are threefold:
- Discuss and evaluate pilot projects to be funded for exemplifying convergence research at an NSF ERC for Connected Eldercare.
- Showcase Connected Eldercare technologies with live laboratory demonstrations; clinicians and caregivers can access elderly homes and provide care services remotely.
- Discuss 1) value proposition for stakeholders, 2) DEI plans, 3) workforce development strategies, and 4) ERC organization and governance.
A tentative program can be viewed here.
Registration is required for both in-person and online participation. Register by June 1, 2022, with Online Form here.
Travel expenses for in-person participation will be fully reimbursed in accordance with the NSF travel guideline. These include a round-trip airfare, local transportation, 1 or 2 nights of logging, and reasonable meals and incidentals. For those collaborators wishing to bring their students and post-docs, we encourage them to participate in the workshop with travel reimbursement. We expect participants from outside the Greater Boston will arrive the night before. The workshop will be concluded by 4:15 pm, so that participants can catch evening flights from Boston – San Francisco 6:30 pm, Atlanta 7:00 pm, etc.
