Cybersecurity Lesson from the Coronoavirus
Click here to register. The global pandemic has dramatically changed healthcare, the country and the world. Patient care and safety has been compromised and subject to risks we never thought possible. but we're not talking about COVID-19, this is about another even more dangerous and resistant virus - cybercrime. Remarkably, these two diseases have a lot in common. Join OrbialFire's Reg Harnish as we explore the lessons we can learn from each and how we can better protect our hospitals, data and patients in the future. (CE for SOCRA Members/Certificates of Attendance upon request).

Building Bridges to Use-Inspired Research and Science-Informed Practices
We invite you to participate in a workshop aiming to strengthen partnerships among academic, private, and government organizations.
Supported by NSF's Directorate of Biological Sciences (BIO), the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), and the Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP) this workshop will build new connections among key biological sciences communities to successfully conduct use-inspired research.
The workshop will consist of a series of events facilitated by KnowInnovation:
- Two free virtual Pre-Workshop MicroLabs (for an unlimited number of participants)
- Friday, April 14, 2023, from noon to 2 p.m. MST
- Friday, May 12, 2023, from noon to 2 p.m. MST
- In-Person Workshop held June 12-14, 2023 in Boise, Idaho (for 120 selected participants representing diverse groups and organizations; applications will open April 14, 2023)
Participants of the workshop will co-create the structures and processes that guide how diverse organizations support and value use-inspired science and will guide NSF to create use-inspired tracks within the Directorate for Biological Sciences and the Office of Integrative Activities. Participants will build connections to new funding and partnership opportunities within and associated with NSF's new Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships. Participants will gain insight from government and private organizations who want their science needs to be more broadly understood and incorporated into research priorities. Click here to Learn More.
