UM System Funding Programs

Fast Track

WHAT: The FastTrack funding program provides proof of concept or gap funding for faculty members focused on technology development, testing, or prototype construction, and/or to conduct specific market research. This evaluation may lead to industry collaboration, licensing, the formation of a new company, or the abandonment of the technology for commercial application. Funds are not to be used for basic research but to evaluate the commercial potential of existing research.
WHO: All UM faculty are eligible to apply.
WHEN: Proposals from UMSL faculty are due to Tamara Wilgers by Monday, May 5, 2014.
MORE INFO: For information on the FastTrack program and the submission process, click HERE or contact Tamara Wilgers (x6884).

IDIC Program
WHAT: The Interdisciplinary Intercampus (IDIC) Research Program is intended to increase interdisciplinary, intercampus research collaborations to leverage the intellectual capital and resources at the four University of Missouri System campuses. Proposals must involve faculty from at least two UM campuses and from at least two different disciplines. Each campus may request up to $50,000 in a proposal; therefore, the maximum funding requested will be $200,000 if all four campuses are collaborating in a proposed study. Faculty may use their networks to identify collaborators on and this program is limited only to the four University of Missouri campuses.
WHO: All tenured/tenure-track Faculty and full-time Ranked, Non-tenure-track Research Faculty are invited to submit short proposals requesting funding to seed the development of:proposals to be submitted to federal agencies for establishing centers, such as the NSF Science and Technology Center; High impact research with a higher priority for research clusters to address the current 21st Century Grand Challenges; or other high impact research addressing significant national problems/priorities.
WHEN: Proposals due by Monday, June 2, 2014 (new deadline)
