RDS Quarterly Update: Winter 2018

Funding Opportunities for Collaborative Research

I 3 Awards (Incubating Interdisciplinary Initiatives)

The Incubating Interdisciplinary Initiatives (I 3) award program fosters new interdisciplinary research projects at UO. I 3 partnerships should emerge from shared research interests and needs and be developed in light of external funding opportunities, UO’s institutional strengths, academic priorities, and institutional history. Partnerships may include external institutions of strategic importance.

UO-OHSU Collaborative Seed Grant

We are pleased to announce a new collaborative seed funding mechanism between the University of Oregon and Oregon Health & Science University that aims to build on strengths of faculty at both institutions, deepen UO-OHSU partnerships, and prepare UO-OHSU teams to apply for external funding that will provide long-term support for research programs. The overall purpose of this CSP is to significantly increase the number of externally funded UO-OHSU collaborative projects. If successful and there is sufficient demand, we hope to re-issue this call again next year and to provide additional support to teams who successfully submitted collaborative external funding applications during their CSP.

For more information on the UO-OHSU Partnership, see the partnership website.
