The Symposium is the latest element of the Research Incubator in Climate and Health, a new initiative sponsored by the Office for Research that aims to support Rutgers researchers developing novel projects at the nexus of climate and health. The symposium will take place in person on October 19 from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., with a reception from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the University Inn and Conference Center in New Brunswick.
The purpose of the Research Incubator’s Symposium is to provide a venue for faculty to gather peer feedback as they improve new research project concepts aligned with the incubator’s theme, pitching their project ideas to an interdisciplinary group of colleagues who join them in facilitated feedback sessions.
Interested individuals can apply to participate in the Symposium through either a team track or a single-investigator track. The latter track is open only to early-career investigators. Slots are limited and Symposium applications will be peer-reviewed by experts in research related to the incubator’s focus.
Only faculty who present at the Symposium will be eligible to apply for internal funding through the Research Incubator’s seed funding initiative in Fall 2022. The seed funding initiative will offer up to $50,000 for single-PI projects from early investigators and up to $150,000 for multi-PI projects led by any eligible faculty.
Submissions will be peer-reviewed by senior faculty with expertise relevant to the theme. All applicants will be notified of decisions by October 7.
