NSF PIRE News :: Blog :: PIRE Students Present Research Posters at the Seventh LA Grid Summit

January 15, 2010

The second cohort of PIRE (Partnership for International Research and Education) students joined FIU's School of Computing and Information Science, FAU and LA Grid partners in a presentation of their accomplishments at the Seventh LA Grid Summit, October 22-23, 2009. This event included the second annual poster contest, which showcased the students' collaborative research, as well as panel discussions that focused on research collaboration.

PIRE is an NSF sponsored program intended to advance global partnerships in cyberinfrastructure research, innovation, and education. FIU-SCIS and FAU continue to nurture and expand this consortium of researchers and educators. It is exciting to see these collaborations serve our students and research partners so effectively. The summer 2009 cohort engaged in research with industry and universities across five nations. The program's multicultural, professional working experience will provide the student participants with experiences and a collaborative network that will benefit them throughout their careers.
