Futures interdisciplinary research grants provide seed funding to Futures Conference research participants, on a competitive basis, to enable further pursuit of important new ideas and connections stimulated by the national conference, bringing people together in a variety of new ways and sparking new interdisciplinary research. The grants provide select researchers an opportunity to explore new research areas, learn new skills, and/or collaborate across disciplines, in cases where this would not otherwise be possible. These grants will help researchers move towards the interfaces between disciplines.
Grant applications from The Informed Brain in a Digital World Conference attendees are currently being reviewed. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by April 2013.
