Department of Homeland Security research opportunities topic of April 9 conference at UW-Oshkosh

OSHKOSH – Learn about research opportunities within the Department of Homeland Security at Feds Funding Research: Working with the Department of Homeland Security conference, Wednesday, April 9 at UW-Oshkosh.

The event will be held at the Reeve Union at UW-Oshkosh. The event kicks off with a networking breakfast and registration at 9:00 a.m. with the program running 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The cost is $20, and free for registrants affiliated with a public or private academic institution.

Produced by the Wisconsin Security Research Consortium and UW-Oshkosh, Feds Funding Research: Working with the Department of Homeland Security will bring together academic researchers and industry innovators and provide information on DHS funding priorities that parallel Wisconsin research specialties. The event will cover topics such as the importance of counter terrorism and an overview of the Department of Homeland Security. Presenters include Adjutant General Donald Dunbar of the Department of Military Affairs and Bill Adolfsen of WiSys.

“This event will provide researchers and industry with the tools they need to effectively pursue research and development grants within DHS. It’s essential to provide these resources and help foster relationships between these two groups because it’s a popular trend we see in teams competing for research grants,” said Jack Heinemann, director of the Wisconsin Security Research Consortium, a non-profit working to help Wisconsin compete for defense-related grants.

The conference is sponsored by Shallbetter, Inc. of Oshkosh, an innovator in the power distribution, power quality and power generation markets and The Derksen Company of Omro, a manufacturing and wholesale business specializing in a range of paper-based business services.
