Crowdfunding for Science (HOTW #AAASWebinar)


(FYI, I now have help for the Hashtags of the Week posts from Chris Bullin. You can see what she’s done at the THL blog: Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): Science Online (Week of January 28, 2013) )

#AAASWebinar: NIH Budget Ain't Doubling...

I was already planning a session on crowdfunding for science for Enriching Scholarship 2013, when I found out that AAAS was holding a webinar on this.

Crowdfunding Science: Appealing to the online community for research money: http://membercentral.aaas.org/multimedia/webinars/crowdfunding-science-appealing-online-community-research-money
Slides: http://membercentral.aaas.org/files/3_slide_deck_full_deck_for_mc_crowdfunding_ed25jan2013.pdf

I stumbled into this after the fact via the Twitter hashtag #AAASwebinar, so while I didn’t get to see the actual webinar, I did pick up some new folk to follow and some tips from the Twitter stream. This is such good content, I am thinking of using some screenshots from this to add color to my talk in May.
