UF-City of Gainesville Research Awards
Charlie Lane, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
The Office of the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer is pleased to announce that it is awarding a total of $250,000 in research awards to faculty who are interested in proposing studies and/or pilot programs to address pressing issues within the City of Gainesville.
During 2016, the university completed a Strategic Development Plan to support UF’s status as a preeminent university and lay the groundwork for a new partnership between UF and the Gainesville community. A key strategy of the plan is to utilize the campus and greater Gainesville as a living laboratory to address real-world problems in our local community. These research awards intend to advance this strategy and engage faculty. The key selection criteria will be the practical application of the research toward solving a local problem or achieving an outcome outlined in the UF Strategic Development Plan.
