Event Description: 

The 2020 NIH Virtual Seminar on Program Funding and Grants Administration has been designed to provide you with a unique opportunity to learn about the NIH grants process, programs, and policies directly from NIH & HHS experts.

This event is intended to help:

  • Demystify the application and review process;
  • Clarify federal regulations and policies; and
  • Highlight current areas of special interest or concern.

Who Should Attend?

This seminar is designed for those who are new to working with the NIH grants process – administrators, early stage investigators, researchers, graduate students, etc. For those with more experience, NIH experts provide a few sessions that are designed for participants that are more advanced and are focused on more in-depth polices and processes.

What to expect?

You may be familiar with the NIH Regional Seminar and wondering if this is the same event moved to a virtual environment. There are some similarities, but also some modifications to accommodate the new format.

  • This event is scheduled over four days in the afternoons only (U.S. New York time zone - EDT). Exhibit Hall: 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM; Sessions 1:00 PM – 5:45 PM
  • There are three tracks of sessions which are open to any participants on any given day without any further registration.
  • All sessions are 45-minute sessions with a 15 minute break before the next session begins. Some are live, while others are simulive (a combination of a pre-recorded video and live Q&A).
  • Representatives from NIH programs, offices, and Institutes and Centers will be presenting and attending booths in the Meet the Experts Exhibit Hall.
