In the second quarter of FY 2016, there were several advances in the university’s research enterprise that I am pleased to tell you about.
Some major awards over the past year worth mentioning are: a $2.5 Million award from Siemens for a Scintillation Materials Research Center, a $1.67 Million award from DOE-ORNL-UT-Battelle to further the work of the Joint Institute for Biological Sciences, and a $1.15 Million award from Honeywell for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Some of our other “wins” are detailed in the report.
UT’s study of nuclear engineering and scintillation materials got a significant boost with a research group being named a major player in a $30 million consortium sponsored by the US Department of Energy.
Program officers agree that “Broader Impact” activity must be both unique and integral to individual grant proposals. However, there remains a need to balance originality with existing support.
The purpose of this new guide is to connect UT investigators with colleagues who already have partnership support in place and who have expressed an interest in connecting to other UT investigators who may add new value to their work.
