Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition

The Chancellor's Office and the Office of Research and Economic Development have committed $40 million over four years to invest in strategic, goal-based solutions.

Two types of support are available through the Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition: planning grants, for which proposals must describe the teaming, ideation, and development activities necessary for collaborative groups to coalesce around one or more of UNL's grand challenge themes; and catalyst awards, for which proposals must describe a plan of work for implementing a goal-based project developed in response to one or more of UNL's grand challenge themes.

A required notice of intent to submit is due on the last Friday of February annually. See solicitation for details.
