Scientific Workshop

The annual SRF Scientific Workshop brings together our Scientific Advisors, funded investigators, applicants, outside experts, and industry partners for an intensive two days of evaluation, discussion, brainstorming, and collaboration.

The Scientific Workshop

At the SRF Scientific Workshop, every current investigator and invited new applicant presents his or her research project and progress to the Scientific Advisory Board and other attendees. The ensuing discussion of projects and new ideas is animated, yet collaborative.
