SP1.3: Increased Institutional Support for Interdisciplinary Research

Interdisciplinary research fuels path-breaking and transformative innovations. This project implemented a number of activities to promote interdisciplinary research among Binghamton faculty: 1) TAE Seed Grants for interdisciplinary collaborative research; 2) Interdisciplinary Collaboration Grants (ICG) Program revised to increase proposal submissions across the disciplines; and 3) Support Development of Core Research Facilities that are crucial to the University's strategy to reach premier status, including a $300,000 award from the Decker Foundation for the purchase of instrumentation for a Health Sciences Core Facility and implementation of the annual NSF Major Research Instrumentation internal competition.

Goals advanced under this project are:

  1. Increase Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Profile to that of a Premier Public University
  2. Enrich Collaborative Culture for Research, Scholarship and Creative Production

Indicators of success for these goals are:
