Interdisciplinary Innovation Team Proposals

The College of Arts and Sciences organizes monthly innovation forums to focus on some of the world's biggest problems where interdisciplinary innovations could have a significant impact and where UAB has existing strengths/interests. These interdisciplinary innovation forums are held in collaboration with faculty from the Schools of Business, Dentistry, Engineering, Health Professions, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, and Public Health, as well as representatives of the UAB Research Foundation and the Birmingham Business Alliance.

Phase I of this initiative are the monthly innovation forums, which will continue into the future.

As part of Phase II, the College is now issuing a call for interdisciplinary team proposals. Available awards will be valued at up to $30,000 for a maximum duration of up to one year. An application guideline is available for download.
