The Office of Research and Economic Development is offering a virtual Grand Challenges Micro Lab on Jan. 12, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. CST. The Micro Lab will help scholars connect and prepare for the first Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition. Register to receive a Zoom link

ORED has partnered with Knowinnovation to create a highly engaging, interactive event that will provide opportunities for networking and developing preliminary research ideas in response to the seven Grand Challenge themes. A lunch break will be provided. 

This virtual event is being offered in lieu of the three-day, in-person scoping workshop initially planned, which was postponed to avoid hosting a large group at this stage of the pandemic. Instead, the Micro Lab will provide the groundwork for an in-person scoping workshop to be rescheduled later in 2022.  

Other important dates: 

Feb. 1, 11 a.m.-noon: Grand Challenges Virtual Town Hall. Register to receive a Zoom link. 

Feb. 28: Deadline to provide notice of intent to submit a proposal. 

April 29: Deadline to submit proposals
Email with questions.
