We are pleased to announce the launch of a $1.2 million internal seed fund program to advance Oregon State’s strength in transdisciplinary team-based research. Coordinated by the Office for Research Advancement in the Division of Research and Innovation, this program will catalyze progress toward the Oregon State Strategic Plan Prosperity Widely Shared, specifically OSU’s goal to become a university skilled at building transdisciplinary teams focused on big discoveries that drive big solutions.
Seed funding of up to $100,000 per award will support OSU faculty as they build transdisciplinary research efforts toward submission of large extramural proposals.
Matching investments from colleges and units are required. The funds may support building new transdisciplinary teams, scaling up existing transdisciplinary research efforts, and developing and submitting ambitious large-scale proposals.
Declarations of intent to apply are due on April 15, 2024 and proposals are due on May 15th. We encourage you to review the guidelines carefully and consider how this program can support you and your collaborators in developing powerful solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.
