The UF Informatics Institute (UFII) invites interdisciplinary, faculty-initiated research projects with potential for extramural support for the second round of the Seed Fund Program.Projects should be innovative, support the mission and goals of the Informatics Institute, and have strong potential for garnering future funding from external sources. Seed Funds are not intended to support on-going projects - they should support new projects (not a supplement to current research) and focus on new collaborative partnerships. Projects should be ‘shovel-ready’, meaning seed funds will be used to produce proof-of concept data and nearly ready to deploy analytical techniques and technologies that can be used to obtain extramural funding.
Deadline: 20 March
Eligibible fields: To be competitive, proposals must be multi-/interdisciplinary and must involve faculty from at least two departments/units/colleges. Single-investigator proposals are not eligible. Proposals involving hypothesis-driven research should clearly and explicitly state the hypothesis. Projects that are methodological and/or technology development should focus on specific, key interdisciplinary problems.
must be emailed in Word or PDF format only as ONE file. Please submit
all proposals to the UFII Director Dr. George Michailidis (firstname.lastname@example.org), with a copy to Dr. Jeevan Jyot (email@example.com) on or before March 20th, 2015.
A signed DSP-1 form is required and may be scanned and submitted as a separate file on as many pages as are necessary to obtain all signatures (or it may be delivered or mailed to the Office of Research). Please ensure that ALL faculty contributing time to the project, as well as their chairs and deans sign the DSP-1 form. DSP-1 forms should be submitted on March 20th, 2015, along with the proposal.
Because these are internal awards, proposals should not be submitted to the Office of Research via the UF PeopleSoft system. They will be entered in PeopleSoft only if funded. These proposals are not routed to DSP’s Proposal Processing Office at the time of submission; all proposals and inquiries should be directed to Dr. George Michailidis and Dr. Jeevan Jyot.
