2015 NASA MUREP Virtual MSI Symposium and Collaboration Videoconference NASA’s Office of Education will host this virtual symposium to provide an opportunity for Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) to receive in-depth information about current NASA EONS solicitations.

This discussion is offered in an effort to help strengthen collaborations between MSI’s and NASA Centers in support of open solicitations in EONS.   MSI’s will have an opportunity to listen to presentations from each NASA Center on Center strengths, core competencies and education interests.  This virtual session will serve as a platform to connect MSI’s with appropriate Center POC’s and raise awareness of the unique strengths of each Center.

This event will be held on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at 3:30 p.m. EDT.  During the event, audience members may submit typed questions via chat box.  After the presentation, there will be a brief Q&A via teleconference call line to provide real time answers to participant questions. In order to address as many participants as possible, questions should be clear and concise, and limited to general topics only. This event will begin promptly on time, so everyone is encouraged to connect 10 – 15 minutes prior to start time to address any technical difficulties you may encounter.
