This may be a mechanisms to consider for our group.  Dave earlier suggested: "Could our small group act as the seed of a broader campus-wide group focused on Evolutionary Psychology, Performance and Health?"  The NSF mechanism that Dave brought up involved such a high initial investment that many of us shied away from it. This could be much more tractable.

Dear colleagues,

Today, we will officially launch the 1U4U Innovation Funding initiative. This program is designed to seed faculty collaborations in areas of mutual research, scholarship, education and institutional opportunity, bridging both academic affairs and health sciences. You can find all about the program and log in at: https://1u4u.utah.edu/

We believe the biggest social and scientific/engineering problems are too complex to be solved by a single discipline. This initiative aims to allow the type of collaborations that often result in true innovations. We also hope that young researchers and scholars on our campus will have the opportunity to participate in partnerships that will help grow and shape their careers.

Briefly, here is how the project works. Each project must include three faculty members from at least two different colleges and representing both academic affairs and health sciences. Faculty who are on career/tenure line are eligible to participate in the 1U4U Initiative. Faculty data has been preloaded into the system.

Of note: Project teams may include staff and other non-tenure/career line faculty members with appropriate dean or vice president approval, and not all projects require a research focus. If you have non-faculty members within your college who you would like to have participate, please contact your dean or vice president's office.

Teams may request funding for either $15K or $30K, depending on the size and scope of a proposal. More details will be available at the 1U4U.utah.edu website.

We will launch the website and distribute a message to faculty about this new program tomorrow. Teams will be able to submit proposals beginning Jan. 13, 2020.

We have committed $400,000 in seed funding from our offices; in addition, some colleges and entities have committed varying sums to supplement funding.

We invite you to help us get the word out about this opportunity and thank you for your support.
