About the Conference


T he Conference

he Pre-Award Research Administration Conference

The Pre-Award Research Administration Conference (PRA) will be held on March 5-6, 2020 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico, immediately following the Financial Research Administration Conference (FRA) on March 2-3, 2020. The workshops will be hosted on a shared day, between the two conferences, on March 4th.  This schedule allows both FRA and PRA participants the opportunity to network together on Workshop Day, should they choose to attend. Workshop participants now have a chance to register for a topic in a learning area outside of your expertise.

Join us for two days of presentations, a welcome reception on the first evening of the conference, discussions, concurrent sessions and networking opportunities spanning a wide array of Pre-Award topics. Our sponsor and exhibitor partners invite you to join us. Network with colleagues at the reception, dinner groups, and by volunteering. NCURA members enjoy a discounted registration fee, and the conference is open to all individuals in the Research Administration community.

Mark your calendars to join us March 5-6, 2020 in San Juan, PR!
