The University of Nebraska Collaborative Initiative, a program designed to help researchers be more competitive in pursuit of extramural funding, will hold a retreat Oct. 31 at the Nebraska Innovation Campus conference center.

The 2019-20 request for applications seeks research projects from multi-campus, multidisciplinary teams. Topics will not be predefined, but applications must be designed to strengthen the team’s future competitiveness for extramural funding. The following grants will be available:

- Planning Grants: One-year grants (up to $20,000 each) to build new collaborations across the university system.

- Formed/Forming Team Seed Grants: Two-year grants (up to $150,000 each) to enhance research collaborations among faculty that have had modest levels of previous collaboration.

- Team Strengthening Seed Grants: Two-year grants (up to $300,000 each) to support existing faculty research collaborations so that teams become more competitive for significant extramural research funding.

- Research with a Global Impact: Up to two seed and two planning grants available to facilitate and strengthen research collaborations among faculty engaging in extramurally-fundable international research. These are new grants this year.

Faculty must attend the day-long Collaboration Initiative Retreat to be eligible for funding from the program. Registration is no-cost but must be received via the online registration portal by Oct. 24.
