Participation and Expertise

The retreat is a working event. Brief morning sessions will outline opportunities for Collaboration Initiative funding. Late morning and the afternoon are focused on providing opportunities for you and your colleagues to draft proposal concepts for Collaboration Initiative grant applications.

Describe your expertise/subject(s) of investigation in a series of three or four keywords each separated by commas.  Please be concise (8-word maximum)!  [Expertise examples would include: Metabolomics, Media Arts, Performance Arts, Trombone, Corn, Plant Viruses, Gender Studies, Health Demographics, Operations Research, Youth, Great Plains History, Pediatric Cancer, Native American Art, Behavioral Physiology, etc.]

Topic of Interest

The retreat format is designed to group faculty that can contribute expertise towards addressing a researchable question/societal problem for the Collaboration Initiative. Please select an area of interest from the topics below (or select other). If one of the listed items does not broadly cover your topic of interest, select "other" and enter a new theme.  If you register early, your "other" theme idea may be moved into the overall topic list. As we can't accommodate all potential interest areas, at the retreat you may initially be assigned to a renamed broad topic area that encompasses your area of interest. Funding-eligible topics for a Collaboration Initiative grant program are not administratively pre-defined. Submissions in response to the RFA, however, must be designed to position a research team to submit a highly competitive extramural funding application immediately following the completion of their proposed work.
