Center grants are a key mechanism for funding high-impact, interdisciplinary work that appear across multiple federal funding agencies and related solicitations from private foundations. In addition, many agencies have programs specifically for collaborative, multi-investigator projects that are beyond the scope of standard research grants. Therefore, identifying and supporting preliminary work towards promising ideas that can drive large-scale collaborative grants is an important goal of the Institute. That said, team science collaborations like center grants present unique challenges for investigators used to single-PI proposals and the ensuing projects.

In this workshop, BioInspired and the Office of Research will cover some of the most common center-type and multi-investigator funding opportunities, including those from NSF, DoD, and NIH. We will also cover the basics of team science projects and offer insight into how to launch and maintain these collaborations successfully.

The meeting will be hybrid.
