Academic Impressions Webcast: Building Bridges: Using Different Levels of Seed Funding to Accelerate Interdisciplinary Research

Get your interdisciplinary research projects off the ground by expanding seed funding options at your institution.

Interdisciplinary research projects tend to be more competitive for external funding and hold potential for high-impact results, but fostering these research projects can be rather challenging, especially in a resource-constrained environment.

One way to advance interdisciplinary research is to use seed funding mechanisms, smaller scale appropriations intended to make research projects more competitive before attempting to win external funding. Figuring out the best seed funding approach based on your budget is key. There are a number of ways you can use any budget amount to foster interdisciplinary collaborations among faculty.

Join us for this 60-minute webcast to hear how two speakers, from two distinct institutions, have used various levels of seed funds in creative and tiered ways to fuel interdisciplinary research efforts.
