Research and Academic Development Seminar: "Strategies for Navigating the DOD for Funding Success"
October 20 2016 at 1:00 PM
5057 Woodward
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Office of the Provost are pleased to offer the Research and Academic Development seminar series for WSU faculty, chairs, directors, postdoctoral trainees, graduate students, and administrators. Seminars are free but registration is required to attend. The next seminar, Strategies for Navigating the Department of Defense (DOD) for Funding Success, will take place Thursday, October 20th, 2016, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at 5057 Woodward Avenue, 6th Floor Conference Room A. The Department of Defense funds grants, contracts and cooperative agreements through various mechanisms, and although easy to identify, successful DOD funding has its challenges. Dr. Bruce LaMattina will discuss the various mechanisms and agencies that fund within the DOD, and share his successful strategies that resulted in generating 20 new federal grants and contracts within a 3-year window. Bruce LaMattina, Ph.D., is director of Research for the Charlotte Research Institute, which works across the University of North Carolina campus and business community on research, development, and commercialization of new technologies. Dr. LaMattina spent ten years as Branch Chief/Program Manager for the DOD Army Research Office, achieving the difficult task of transitioning fundamental research from universities to fielded systems. It was as director of Federal Research Relations at Rutgers University that he increased federal funding $9 million dollars, with a six-fold increase in DOD Young Investigator awards in a brief window of time. Dr. LaMattina earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at North Carolina State University, and completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering at the University of Delaware.
