Research Priorities

In recent years, NYU has invested in six main areas of growth for our research enterprise, spanning the wide array of faculty strengths at the University.

Expand the six areas below for relevant links.

Resources for Research

NYU continually seeks to strengthen its environment for research, scholarship, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

To stimulate faculty innovation and support their research and scholarship, the University administers a wide range of challenge programs and seed funds that are available on a competitive basis from a variety of institutional sources. Support is available for multi-disciplinary and inter-school projects, curriculum development, research, entrepreneurship, and the development of "mega grant proposals"; a number of funds are additionally reserved for the support of junior faculty.

NYU’s global network offers additional singular opportunities for faculty (and graduate students) through its research institutes of NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai, the Global Research Initiatives program, and the Global Institute for Advanced Study.
