Faculty Team Research Concept Competition

The Faculty Team Research Concept Competition is intended to help researchers build teams around a project idea of an individual's choosing. Videos were submitted to pitch these ideas and now registrants to the Team Research Symposium are invited to vote for the project they would like to participate in from the videos below. One vote per person, please.

The three videos with the most interest will be invited to flesh out and share their ideas in two phases at the Team Research Symposium on Thursday, April 22nd:

Phase I: After semi-finalists share a short overview of their work at the beginning of the first session at 9:30 am, they will then go into breakout sessions with their teams of potential collaborators (based on registrant votes). During these meetings, the teams will work on developing near-term plans for developing their project.

Phase II: Semi-finalists will present their problem, initial team, and research development plan to a panel of judges at 11:00 am on Thursday, April 22nd. The winning team will receive $10,000 in research support and the two runner up teams will receive $5,000 each.

 

VOTING HAS ENDED

Congratulations to the finalists for this year's competition!

Attendess to Part I of the Faculty Team Research Concept Competition from 9:30 - 10:30 AM will get to work with their selected project to help them flesh out their ideas before the final presentation in front of the judges at 11:00 that morning.
