Funding Focus: Intercampus Research Incentive Grants Program

University of Wisconsin-Madison and UW-Milwaukee announced the establishment of the first UW-Madison/UW-Milwaukee Intercampus Research Incentive Grants Program, an initiative to support research projects and scholarship undertaken jointly at the two campuses.

The universities encourage faculty and academic staff to initiate projects that will lead to productive intercampus interactions and promote partnerships in many areas, including water/energy, health care, advanced manufacturing, biomedical engineering, K-12 education, social sciences and the humanities. All proposals should be structured so that they reflect the engagement of investigators from the two institutions. Both new collaborations as well as further development of existing collaborations will be considered. Involvement of the other institution shall be in the form of a subcontract to the partner institution. At least 25% of the budget must be for activities at the partner institution. Successful grant proposals should lay the groundwork for future federal or state grant submissions, or funding from private foundations.
