InCHIP Rolling Seed Grants to Develop Interdisciplinary Research Teams

Deadline: Applications accepted on a rolling basis
Purpose: These grants provide funds to support the development of interdisciplinary research teams with high potential for securing external funding through activities such as (but not limited to) a one-day workshop or series of structured meetings to develop a research agenda and identify team leaders, conduct small pilot studies, or publish a high-impact literature review to establish a team’s expertise in a new area. Any activity that has the potential to prepare multidisciplinary teams to submit external grant applications that are consistent with the mission of InCHIP will be considered. Successful teams should be cross-department (at least 2 departments) and ideally cross-college (at least 2 colleges) or cross-campus (team members from UConn and UConn Health) and be comprised of researchers with a range of seniority and experience.
