In this NIH All About Grants episode, Dr. Paula Goodwin with the NIH Office of Extramural Research discusses the Diversity Plan, why it is required for conference grant applications, some things to consider when putting a plan together, how reviewers will assess it, and more.
Are you a life science entrepreneur or biomedical researcher looking for seed funding? Are you a stakeholder in a minority-owned business? Are you new to NIH small business programs? If so, make plans today to participate in the 2021 HHS Small Business Program Conference, presented virtually from April 26-30. Registration is free!
At NIH, we have and continue to focus not just on gender equity but on ensuring greater diversity in all aspects of the biomedical workforce. This means, that along with women, members of racial and/or ethnic minority groups, people with disabilities, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds are also included. To help ensure that the nation remains a global leader in scientific discovery and innovation, NIH needs the richness and breadth of varied perspectives that comes from having a pool of highly talented scientists from diverse backgrounds.
In that spirit, today we released a guide notice (NOT-OD-21-053) that updates guidance for NIH R13/U13 Conference Grant applicants and recipients.
Not to worry, the entire conference is still available to you on the event platform until Nov 19! The only thing missing is the immediate access to staff that the “live” event offered. Recordings of the presentations and related materials, as well as a plethora of resources from the Institute and Center Exhibit Hall booths await your exploration.
As everything has gone virtual these days, so do we. Join us from your favorite chair, at your favorite table, and in your favorite room for the 2020 NIH Virtual Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration at the end of October.
