Hyatt Regency Crystal City

Resilience in a Shifting Research Landscape

The 10th Annual NORDP Research Development Conference will be held May 7- 9, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia (Washington, D.C. metro area).

The conference is a three-day event focused on understanding key trends in research funding, networking with colleagues, and discussing the programs, tools and skills that research development (RD) professionals bring to help organizations attract extramural research funding, increase institutional competitiveness, create research relationships, and foster innovation.

The conference promises prominent keynote speakers, as well as federal and private funding agencies representatives, to inform and inspire attendees. In addition, there will be a strong cadre of presenter-initiated sessions covering such topics as best practices in RD, managing institutional change, agency updates, building collaborations, research development at undergraduate institutions, building resilience in times of change, and more. This year we will continue using the Pillars to broadly classify presentations by focus, including RD Fundamentals, Leadership Development in RD; Professional Development; Funder Updates and Other Topics in RD.
