RII, Meet Yourself!

Meet the people and units that support the UArizona Research Enterprise

Back by popular demand, we're excited to reboot our RII, MEET YOURSELF series. Beginning October 5 from 1-2pm, RII will host twice monthly Zoom Webinars presenting the opportunity to learn more about the people and units that make Research, Innovation & Impact. Come learn about the important work we're doing to drive growth in research funding and facilitate the breakthroughs happening all across UArizona.

Different operations units will present on their responsibilities and services, what's new and how to get in touch. A Q&A will follow each presentation, with time to answer questions about the presenting units.​​​​​

Register for all 16 sessions through the link below and you'll receive an email with the calendar events. Please reach out to Research-Training@arizona.edu with any questions.
