The University has announced awards to 26 teams of faculty in its new Global Seed Grants for Collaborative Research competition established by the Provost of NYU, together with the Provosts of NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. The winning teams were selected from among 45 teams involving 111 faculty members who submitted applications for this competition.
The aim of this program is to support research that strengthens collaborations among the schools at NYU in New York and the portals at NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai, to develop research capacity across NYU campuses, to gain outlook and knowledge in international settings, and possibly to serve as a platform for obtaining future extramural funding.
The winning teams, each of which has at least two Principal Investigators from at least two separate portals, span the full range of academic disciplines and NYU schools. The awards, typically for two years and starting in April 2016, were made by the Global Collaborative Research Advisory Committee, a committee of faculty from NYU in New York, NYU Abu Dhabi, and NYU Shanghai. They are listed below.
