Faculty of Science Call for Interdisciplinary Projects 2015

The Faculty of Science is pleased to launch a Call for New Interdisciplinary Projects. With total funding of $250,000 available, the Faculty expects to fund up to 5 new projects with the potential to develop emerging interdisciplinary areas of strength. Projects will need participation from faculty members from at least two different Departments to qualify, and projects will need to demonstrate a concrete plan to develop the proposed research area. Full information and the application form template can be found here.

Complete application packages must be submitted to Seanna-Lin Brodie-Keys, (electronically) or to the Office of the Dean, Burke Science Building (BSB), Room 102 (paper copies). Applications are due by May 20, 2015 at 4 pm.

RSVP for the next Industry and Private Partnership Program (IP3) event, April 28

All faculty members are invited to attend the Faculty’s fourth talk in the Industry and Private Partnerships (IP3) speakers series. The event, “What is the real story of private partnerships? Opportunities, challenges, outcomes and results?” is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm in the Great Hall of the University Club. To reserve a seat, please email Mary Cass.

A summary of our first event can be found on the IP3 webpage. We have also posted a copy of the slides from the McMaster Industry Liaison Office (MILO) describing some of the grant programs available to support partnered research.

The IP3 Partnership Lecture Series is a series of four talks to help researchers find better ways to initiate, manage and sustain successful partnerships with off-campus groups, be they from the private, community, not-for-profit or government sectors. The ultimate goals of the program are to increase research productivity, provide more opportunities for graduate students, expand community partnerships and advance the mobilization of research outputs.
