The EBI-2 program at UC Davis was invited to apply for, and was successfully awarded, an NSF grant supplement to organize the PFI:AIR-RA Grantees Workshop. The event took place in Arlington, VA, on January 6-7, 2015, followed immediately after by the NSF I/UCRC Directors Meeting.

Having granted 25 awards under the Accelerating Innovation Research - Research Alliances (AIR-RA) and Partnerships for Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research - Research Alliances (PFI:AIR-RA) grant programs, NSF was interested to gather all grantees for a workshop. The objectives of the PFI:AIR-RA Grantees Workshop were:
  1. To offer the first opportunity since the program's inception to gather the grantees together and share lessons learned, challenges overcome, and successes achieved.
  2. To afford NSF the opportunity to brief and get feedback from the grantees on program-related issues and information, including suggestions for improvements.
  3. To discuss the development and sustainability of an academic based innovation ecosystem catalyzed with PFI:AIR-RA funding, including funding models and future opportunities.
