All full project proposals are due no later than 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on June 25, 2018. Proposals must be submitted online at IU’s internal grant application portal, Infoready.
Proposals may be developed and submitted without formal assistance from the office of the Vice President for Research (VPRO), the Steering Committee (SC), or the Scientific Leadership Team (SLT), but such guidance is available to all interested faculty members. In all cases, interested faculty are advised to confer with the Scientific Leadership Team members associated with the primary focus area(s) of the planned project. It is also important to familiarize oneself with projects that have already been funded through the Grand Challenge to avoid redundancy and to explore possible synergies with these projects as you develop proposals.
The complex factors shaping the addictions crisis suggest the value of innovative, cross-disciplinary collaborative projects. To encourage the development of such projects, the office of the Vice President for Research has arranged for a series of events designed to help faculty members create interdisciplinary teams working on novel, transformational responses to the addictions crisis.
