2017 TRISP FUNDING AWARDEES
Serving as a catalyst for UNC Charlotte faculty, the Targeted Research Internal Seed Program (TRSIP) offers internal funds intended to (1) help generate more compelling grant submissions to federal agencies, (2) initiate new intellectual directions for our faculty, and (3) foster new relationships across colleges, departments or centers.
The Charlotte Research Institute’s Targeted Research Internal Seed Program (TRISP) offers two tiers of funding: 1) larger grants of up to $60K that require collaboration between two or more faculty members and require interdisciplinary research, and 2) smaller grants capped at $12K that are typically for one PI.
Awards in the 2017 competition were made to individual researchers and collaborative teams representing eight departments: Physics and Optical Science, Chemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science, Computer Science, Psychological Science, Geography and Earth Sciences, and EPIC/Electrical and Computer Engineering.
