GIDI supports a seed funding program for cross-Grounds collaborative research projects. The purpose of this program is to bring diverse investigators together to tackle important questions and perform transformative, interdisciplinary work that will differentiate the UVA research enterprise. Proposals involve investigative teams from a variety of disciplines, from different Schools across Grounds. Evidence of prior collaboration is not required, and the creation of new partnerships is encouraged.
Awards for 2018 have already been announced. Funding applications for 2019 will open in the Fall of 2018.
