Workshop Agenda

Highly Integrated Basic and Applied Research (HIBAR) 

Primary Workshop Goals

  1. To find shared understanding about HIBAR: What is it? Why do we need more of it?
  2. To find possible ways to collaborate on advancing HIBAR.
  3. To express these understandings in a group consensus statement (see a draft example).
  4. To consider another meeting(s): Would this be helpful? If so, who should attend?
  5. To consider applying for a grant to help accelerate such initiation efforts and related work.
