We are pleased to announce that after a thorough internal and external review process, 8 awards have been made to fund exceptionally promising, innovative materials research on campus through the 2017 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program.
These awards total $360,000 in internal research funding to 17 Ohio State researchers from 8 departments in two colleges. The program was able to fund 28% of the proposals submitted this year; 8 out of a total 28. Congratulations to the eight research teams whose projects were selected this year for seed grant funding.
The 2017 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program provides internal research funding opportunities through two distinct Funding Tiers designed to achieve the greatest impact for seeding and advancing excellence in materials research of varying scopes.
The OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program is jointly funded and managed by the Center for Emergent Materials (CEM), the Center for Exploration of Novel Complex Materials (ENCOMM), and the Institute for Materials Research (IMR).
A PDF with abstracts of each awarded research project is available online. Congratulations to the eight research teams whose projects were selected this year for seed grant funding!
