Activities

Special Project Fund (SPF)

A proposal to establish an AC21 Special Project Fund (SPF) was adopted at the General Assembly held on July 30, 2008 at North Carolina State University.   The SPF was created in order to bring together members of AC21 Universities, encouraging and introducing new research opportunities, exchange and networking for academics.  Event organizers will attempt to include large numbers of researchers, post doctoral students, and graduate students.  Events may include mini-symposia, mini-workshops, schooling projects, start-up funds for long term research projects, small international forums, as well as traditional research proposals that attempt to include a wide circle of contacts and participants.
