Interdisciplinary Research Clusters

Inter- and intradisciplinary reserach presents unique challenges, yet is necessary to broach many of the most complex challenges of the day.  In an effort to support such reserach, the RIEEE offers modest seed money for research clusters through our CONCERT Faculty Grant Program.  Supported clusters are identified through a competitive application process, with requests for new and continued support accepted about every year.  Supported clusters are expected to utilize seed funds in anticipation of applying for external funding.

Current clusters include:
