Global Research Collaborations
This research retreat was held July 16 - 18, 2008 at The Barn, Valley Falls, Kansas. Our two keynote speakers were Dr. David Lightfoot, Assistant Director, Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences at the National Science Foundation, and Dr. Marion Müller, Director of the North American Office of the German Research Foundation.
