We’ve designed and developed a few signature workshops since we began working with interdisciplinary groups of scientists in 2004. Our events are evolving along with the needs of the scientists we work with and developments in technology, too.
Virtual Events – view details
Any KI workshop can be run virtually. KI’s Virtual Events are multi-day workshops that offer just about all of the advantages of in-person events without the time and money associated with travel. These are interactive and should not be confused with webinars (You will not be able to grade papers while you participate.).
Ideas Labs – view details
An Ideas Lab brings together groups of 25-30 interdisciplinary researchers to create teams and develop new and innovative grant proposals through real-time peer review over the course of a five-day, residential workshop.
Scoping Sessions – view details
Scoping sessions are short workshops that maximize diverse expertise and input to break down a broad topic area into actionable challenges and opportunities for future research.
Group Writing Workshops – view details
Writing workshops allow experts representing different perspectives to come together to genuinely co-author an article, policy brief, or other collaborative document.
Micro Labs (a.k.a. µLabs) are 60-90 minute virtual events that can, for example, serve to introduce an upcoming event to potential applicants or sustain a community formed at a previous event. The possibilities are endless.
Convergence Accelerator Workshops bring together interdisciplinary groups to generate themes and ideas for Phase I funding from the NSF. These workshops consist of a 90-minute Microlab and three half-day virtual sessions, with the aim of pinpointing research themes with substantial societal impact.
Square-Table Workshops are a structured collaborative events designed to bring together experts from diverse fields and funders from different agencies to explore the intersection of their disciplines, generate innovative ideas and solutions for the future, and inspire interdisciplinary research.
Interactive Konferences are virtual workshops that offer just about all of the advantages of in-person events without the time and money associated with travel. These are interactive and should not be confused with webinars. You will not be able to grade papers while you participate.
