Research & Innovation Forums

Kent State University is committed to growing research through collaboration, creating opportunities for scientists and scholars to work together toward bold new pursuits and innovations.
To that end, Vice President for Research, Dr. Paul DiCorleto, initiated the RASP Research and Innovation Forum speaker series in Spring 2016 as a way to let faculty become more familiar with their colleagues' work.

To date, RASP has hosted numerous forums, giving several KSU faculty the chance to highlight their research, and giving countless other faculty members the chance to interact with the speakers and each other, and begin dialogues that may just lead to the cutting-edge discoveries, scientific revelations and technological innovations of tomorrow.

You can always find the flyers for upcoming or past forums here, as well as video links for our most recent forums. If there is no video, contact RASP Marketing and Public Relations Communication Specialist, Dan Pompili at ext. 20731 or dpompili@kent.edu, to obtain the slides from previous speakers' presentations, or to learn if and when video will be available.
