Dr. Tim Lillie to participate in NSF Ideas Lab


Dr. Timothy Lillie has been selected to participate in the 2014 NSF Ideas Lab:  Engineering, sponsored by the American Society for Engineering Education.

An Ideas Lab is a new merit review strategy being used at the National Science Foundation (NSF) to address challenges in STEM research and education. The Ideas Lab process is modeled on the "IDEAS Factory" program developed by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of the United Kingdom.

A diverse group of participants from a wide range of disciplines will join together in an intensive, interactive and free-thinking environment, where participants immerse themselves in a collaborative dialog in order to construct bold and innovative approaches.

The five-day Ideas Lab concludes with the development of multidisciplinary collaborative concepts by teams of participants; a sub-set of these teams are then invited to submit full proposals. 

Dr. Lillie was the only individual selected from UA to participate in this conference.  The Ideas Lab will take place from March 17-21 in Leeburg, Virginia. 

Congratulations, Dr. Lillie.
