Please join us on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at noon ET (GMT -5:00) for a hour-long webinar entitled “Crowdfunding Science: Appealing to the
online community for research money..
With federal and state funding for science flat or on the downward trend, many young scientists are looking for new ways to support their research. One way is crowdfunding, appealing directly to the public via the Internet for money. Crowdfunding holds huge potential for scientists who can effectively capture the imagination of the public and get them to open their wallets in support of science.
In AAAS MemberCentral’s webinar Crowdfunding Science: Appealing to the online community for research money, we’ll look at #SciFund Challange, a website that helps researchers get their projects funded by the public, and we’ll also hear from two researchers who successfully funded their projects via the crowd. We’ll find out what they learned along the way, share tips on how to reach your funding goal, and give you an opportunity to ask the speakers questions.
