Save the Date! The 11th Annual NORDP Research Development Conference will be held in Providence, RI, April 29 - May 1, 2019.

11th Annual NORDP Research Development Conference

April 29 - May 1, 2019 • Providence, Rhode island

#NORDP2019 will be bigger than previous NORDP Conferences with three full days of programming! That’s more than 20 hours of extra content and presentations for RD professionals. NEW this year:

  • Conference registration includes all activities (no separate pre-conference to justify), making the conference more inclusive for all attendees.
  • Two-hour sessions will allow presenters and participants to discuss a topic in greater detail and engage the content more fully.
  • Lightning Talks: five-minute presentations that allow individuals to share new and creative ideas for fostering research development.

Mark your calendars! This year’s early bird rate is $640, making NORDP 2019 an affordable 3-day conference (comparable to other professional conferences). These new formats, in addition to more networking time, should make NORDP 2019 the best Research Development Conference ever!

Stay tuned to the blog for further details on NORDP 2019.
