Looking for collaborators in data science? The MBDH Collaboration Cafe is open!

The Collaboration Cafe is a new monthly webinar open to all that is focused on building a community of data science researchers in the Midwest and beyond to explore funding opportunities and develop proposals. We are focused on elevating early-career scholars, particularly from underresourced institutions, but everyone is welcome, including participants from industry, nonprofits, and government agencies.

The Collaboration Cafe is an informal meeting, but has some structured elements during each session, including a funding opportunity walk-through, lessons learned from prior awardees, researcher lightning talks, small group discussions, and a speed-networking segment.

To tell us more about your interests, or to present at the Collaboration Cafe, please fill out the form in the sidebar.
