After a successful inaugural year that saw 28 highly innovative and potentially groundbreaking research and infrastructure projects selected for funding, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education has announced Year 2 of the UW2020: WARF Discovery Initiative. “UW2020 is allowing us to fund the projects our UW–Madison researchers have dreamed about doing and we are excited to continue this program,” says Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education Marsha Mailick. “UW2020 awards exemplify our faculty’s continued commitment to impactful, innovative collaborative research.” The initiative seeks to fund research projects that have the potential to fundamentally transform a field of study, as well as projects that require significant development prior to the submission of applications for external funding.
