In the winter of 2015, a handful of current and former CLIR postdoctoral fellows gathered at a small restaurant in Washington, D.C., to celebrate publication of The Process of Discovery: The CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and the Future of the Academy.

Additionally, the Discussion Document includes copious illustrative examples of how the Office envisions the proposals might work in practice.
