The Collaboration Initiative is designed to help University of Nebraska researchers become more competitive for extramural funding by helping foster meaningful collaborations that leverage the full intellectual capacity of faculty across the campuses.
This year’s Request for Applications (RFA) will solicit proposals from faculty teams that are studying extramurally fundable research question(s) using a broad multidisciplinary “systems” approach.
Researchable topics will not be administratively pre-defined, but applications must be designed to position the team to submit a highly competitive extramural funding application immediately following the completion of their proposed work. To be funding eligible, PI's must attend the Collaboration Initiative Retreat on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017. Registration for the retreat must be completed by Oct. 27, 2017.
Applications are due by 5PM (CST) on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018.
For more information, please download the RFA pdf.
