BSP Calendar


Event: MSP Working Session

Apr 13, 2010
9:00 AM - 2:30 PM

UMass Boston Campus Center

"What has the Boston Science Partnership meant to Boston?"

"What can others learn from the Boston science story?"

The MSP Working Session will provide an opportunity for those interested in learning from and replicating aspects of the BSP to learn more about how our Partnership has accomplished its goals, and to explore the BSP's strategies and emerging models in more depth. The BSP will serve as a case study of a "mature" project in Year 6 of its funding. Empirical evidence will be a component of each topic throughout the day. Principal Investigators from other projects will provide additional examples from their contexts to complement the specifics from Boston.

The primary target audiences for the MSP Working Session on April 13th are NSF-funded MSP projects, state MSP projects, and MSP-Start teams in the proposal development stages. There are a limited number of travel stipends for NSF projects only. Please see below for more information.

The MSP Working Session follows on the BSP Showcase, and is intended to complement the broad portrait of the project gathered on April 12th.

Registration fee and travel honorarium

There is a $100 registration fee for each attendee to cover the costs of meals and materials. We encourage groups to attend. It is recommended that teams include the lead PI and either Co-PIs (such as from the school district) or the evaluator/researcher.

Teams of between two and four people from a single MSP can receive up to $500 honorarium for each attendee to off-set travel and registration costs. A single representative can receive up to $300 honorarium for travel costs. This structure provides an incentive to bring teams of people.

Funds will be allocated on a first come-first served basis and will be dispersed after the event. If these funds are accounted for prior to the event, registrants will be placed on a waiting list to receive funds in the case that a confirmed team is not able to attend. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel and lodging needs, costs and arrangements.
