BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Office of the Vice President for Research at Indiana University has awarded IU Collaborative Research Grants to 16 teams of faculty researchers.

Now in its third year, the program will provide just over $1 million in seed funding to researchers from different departments, schools and campuses for transformative research projects that have a substantial chance of attracting future external funding.

More than 275 faculty members from eight IU campuses were involved in the 108 proposals submitted for this round of awards. The teams submitting applications were required to be new collaborations working on new projects. Teams that receive IU Collaborative Research Grants are expected to submit external funding proposals within 18 months of their awards.

"Team science is a high priority for federal funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health," said IU Vice President for Research Jorge Jose. "The collaborations represented in this year's grants are outstanding examples of how IU faculty can work together to study important problems, further their own work and enhance Indiana University's research profile."

Overall, 48 faculty members from a dozen schools received IU Collaborative Research Grants this year. Each team will participate in an IUCRG Day in March 2014 to present the preliminary results of their research in an open forum.

Project abstracts for 2012-13 IU Collaborative Research Grant recipients can be found online.
