2021-2022 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 2021-2022 funding opportunity is designed to facilitate and strengthen research collaborations among NU faculty.
This year’s faculty-grant Request for Applications (RFA) will solicit proposals from multi-campus multidisciplinary teams that help position them to compete for extramural funding. Researchable topics will not be administratively predefined, but applications must be designed to strengthen the team’s future funding proposal. All disciplines are encouraged to apply; projects must build towards a competitive extramural funding application.
