The OSU Institute for Materials Research (IMR) announces the latest round of IMR Facility Grants awards.
Six new research projects were awarded by the IMR in June 2012, for a total investment of $12,000 in nascent materials research. The six projects support faculty researchers from five different departments within the College of Engineering and the Division of Natural and Mathematical Sciences.
More information about IMR Facility Grants – including full abstracts for each of these six projects – can be found on our website: http://imr.osu.edu/research/programs/facility-grants/

OSU is hosting the 2012 Behavior Change for a Sustainable World Conference August 3-5. Conference sponsors include OSU’s Office of Energy and Environment and Center for Automotive Research. Please see the announcement below for more details on speakers and registration.
2012 Behavior Change for a Sustainable World Conference
Friday, August 3–Sunday, August 5, 2012
The Ohio Union at the Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
Early registration through June 18, 2012.
Save the dates now and plan to be part of this seminal gathering on how basic principles of behavior change can help in the fight to preserve our environment. As world-famous climatologist Lonnie Thompson noted in his paper in The Behavior Analyst (Fall, 2010), there is currently no engineering fix for climate change. For now, the only thing we can do is change human behavior.
The program will feature prominent figures in behavior analysis, environmental organizations, business, and government. Invited addresses and panels, research and project posters, and interactive brainstorming sessions will give conference attendees a unique opportunity to interact with people with diverse backgrounds who are interested in working on one of the greatest challenges to face civilization since the last ice age.
In addition to invited presentations by distinguished scholars, attendees will have the opportunity to review current research at a poster session. Questions regarding the sustainability conference should be directed to the ABAI office at (269) 492-9310 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Tours of Sustainability Research Programs
Conference attendees can choose from a number of tours of sustainability research and development programs including the Byrd Polar Research Center, Center for Automotive Research, the Zero Waste Project at Ohio Stadium, and Blue Rock Station.
