2020-2021 Collaboration Initiative
The primary purpose of the Collaboration Initiative is to enhance competitiveness of University of Nebraska faculty for extramural funding by fully leveraging intellectual capacity and research resources across the campuses. The 2020-2021 funding opportunity was designed to facilitate and strengthen research collaborations among NU faculty.
This year’s faculty-grant Request for Applications (RFA) solicited proposals from multi-campus multidisciplinary teams that helped position them to compete for extramural funding. Researchable topics were not administratively predefined, but applications were required to strengthen the team’s future funding proposal. All disciplines were encouraged to apply; projects were intended to build towards a competitive extramural funding application.View the 2020-2021 RFA
