Building Community and Capacity in Data Intensive Research in Education (BCC-EHR) NSF 15-563
This program seeks to enable research communities to develop visions, teams, and capabilities dedicated to creating new, large-scale, next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance fundamental research for EHR areas of research. Successful proposals will outline activities that will have significant impacts across multiple fields by enabling new types of data-intensive research. Investigators should think broadly and create a vision that extends intellectually across multiple disciplines and that includes—but is not necessarily limited to—EHR areas of research.

The Office of Sponsored Programs has conducted over a dozen information sessions to get the word out. We thank all of you that have attended one or more of the sessions. There are resource documents available on the OSP website at http://research.utk.edu/osp/ug/.
If your department would like for us to set up an information session for you, please contact OSP at email@example.com or 865-974-3466.
