The UT One Health Initiative has launched its second seed grant competition. This grant program offers internal funds to support and grow collaborative One Health research projects across the University of Tennessee system. The goal of the program is to create transdisciplinary synergies among faculty, staff, students, and external collaborators that embrace a One Health approach to investigations.
Several small awards (up to $40,000) are available to foster cross-cutting research, education, or outreach efforts in any of the following areas:
- wildlife, livestock, plant, and human health
- real-time monitoring of farm and environmental conditions
- smart data analysis and multi-scale mathematical modeling
- quantifying economic impacts of current issues requiring a One Health solution
Additionally, one award will be available for exploring healthy, living shorelines on the Tennessee River (in partnership with Tennessee RiverLine) and one globally-focused award addressing one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (in partnership with UT’s Smith Center for International Sustainable Agriculture and the Center for Global Engagement). See previous Seed grant recipients here.
Proposals are due by 11:59pm Eastern on 1 February 2022. Applications can be submitted via InfoReady: https://tennessee.infoready4.com/#competitionDetail/1851622.
