In March 2018, President Trump imposed a 25% duty on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum. Most countries are covered by these tariffs but some have negotiated quotas with the United States. National security tariffs are now looming for automobiles and auto parts, and section 232 investigations are underway for uranium and titanium sponge.
Two expert panels will examine: 
  • The arcane law and its limits as tested by litigation.
  • Proposed legislation to restrict the President’s authority.
  • The steel and aluminum tariffs and the product exclusion process, and how these have impacted US manufacturers and global supply chains.
  • The effect of such tariffs on the auto industry.
  • The impact on the negotiation of free trade agreements.

Description: Once again, we are organizing an NSF CAREER workshop aimed at junior faculty for their submissions. This will begin with a presentation by Dr. Ken Chong, followed by 1-1 meetings with Dr. Carl Batt (some of you are already in touch with Dr. Batt). Past CAREER recipients are welcome to join to share your expertise, especially in the presentation on May 3, or act as faculty mentor for our CAREER submission applicants. Lunch will be provided.

The SEH WoWTALK (What’s Our Work) series began in 2016 in an effort to bring together researchers in or related to SEH to present their work and explore collaboration potentials. By now, 12 events have taken place featuring 41 talks by 42 speakers from CCAS, SEAS, SMHS, Public Health, and OVPR.

Here, we would like to hear from you on possible outcomes from this event series. This could be joint papers, joint proposals, or other forms of collaborations that have benefited from the WoWTALK series. You can enter your input in this brief web form:

A New Series to Enhance CCAS Research
& Scholarship!

In an effort to boost the competitiveness of grant and fellowship applications from CCAS faculty, we are pleased to launch the CCAS Grantsmanship Workshop Series, focusing on the techniques and strategies for successful grant and fellowship applications.  We expect this event series to include panel discussions by experienced colleagues, presentations from funding agencies, as well as other types of events that could enhance the research and scholarship of CCAS faculty.

Our first workshop will be take place on Wednesday, February 27, 12 – 1:30pm. Detailed information can be found in the enclosed flyer.  RSVP is appreciated.

There could be a variety of reasons for your attendance. It could that you wish to learn more about fellowship application, or you are an experienced colleague who could act as additional resources during the panel, or you simply take this opportunity to network with other colleagues with similar interests. Please feel welcome to join us for this inaugural event.

We appreciate the suggestions and feedback from the CCAS Research Advisory Council in launching this workshop series.
