The University is introducing a new Interdisciplinary Research Grant program that seeks to support and encourage faculty researchers who will tackle global challenges or problems that affect the needs of urban populations. We encourage applications that address specific challenges in ways that can be approached by combining expertise across disciplines (such as the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities).
The goal of this program is to provide seed funding for projects that will become eligible and competitive for external funding. The program replaces the long-running Collaborative Incentive Research Grant Program.
