Cross disciplinary teams of CU Denver faculty from across the campus are invited to submit proposals for funding to support planning, team formation, and proposal development around “high Impact” research and creative work. The goal of this program is to bring national and international recognition to CU Denver in research and creative work with multi-disciplinary teams that can directly contribute to CU Denver's 2030 Strategic Plan Goal 3 of "Research Grand Challenges" and to "Become internationally known for our research and creative work."
This grant program places emphasis on high-risk/high-payoff research, projects with larger societal impact, convergent research approaches, engagement of broad stakeholder communities, and the adoption of innovative team science formations. With the convergence research grant program, multi-disciplinary teams are asked to identify important challenges, ones taking a wider range of skills and expertise to be successful than more traditional research projects. This funding program will provide funding and resources to build effective relationships with partner groups, institutions, and stakeholder communities.
