Ohio State/Brazil collaboration funds 19 grants to develop and strengthen partnerships

Fri, 18th December, 2015

Ohio State University and the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) continue to build upon existing partnerships and collaborate in new ways, as a result of the Scientific Cooperation Agreement that was signed in March 2013 to support research and innovation. The agreement called for Ohio State and FAPESP to each contribute $700,000 to begin a five-year program.

A joint call for proposals was issued in May 2015 to encourage the formation of research collaborations and encourage the exchange of researchers between FAPESP and Ohio State. Researchers from any department and discipline affiliated with Ohio State and the Higher Education Research Institutions in the State of São Paulo were invited to submit collaborative proposals in two categories:

  • Mobility Grants: Provide up to $20,000 in funding for a period of up to one year for travel, health insurance and living expenses related to the exchange of researchers between the two countries.
  • Regular Research Awards: Provide up to $100,000 in funding for a period of two years for research-related expenses related directly to the project as well as travel, health insurance and living expenses related to the exchange of researchers between the two countries.

Following a competitive review process coordinated by FAPESP and Ohio State, 12 Mobility Grants and 7 Regular Research Grants have been selected for funding. Ohio State and FAPESP will each provide$450,000 for this round of funding.

View the list of funded proposals.

Following the first round of funding in 2013, 24 proposals were selected for funding. View the list of funded proposals from the 2013 call for proposals.

Thu, 27th August, 2015

All full-time Ohio State faculty from any college or discipline are invited to submit proposals for the annual Battelle Engineering, Technology and Human Affairs (BETHA) Endowment grant competition. The Battelle Memorial Institute-Ohio State partnership fosters programs that examine the relationship between science and technology and its impact on broader social and cultural issues. Emphasis is placed on educational and public service projects rather than pure research. Interdisciplinary collaborations within the university and collaborations with other institutions are especially encouraged. Projects that address engineering-related topics or feature collaborations between engineering and the social sciences or arts/humanities are particularly welcomed. Typically, three to six awards are granted, ranging from $10,000 to $60,000.  Awards will be made in the spring of 2016 for projects to begin the following autumn semester. The deadline for receipt of proposals is Tuesday, November 24, 2015, at 5 p.m. 

For more information or with questions contact Cheryl Cahlander, betha@research.osu.edu, or call (614) 247-4764.

Whitacre to deliver annual state of research address

Wed, 26th August, 2015

Annual State of Research Address

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22
8:30 a.m.
U.S. Bank Conference Theater
Ohio Union

Dr. Caroline Whitacre, vice president for research, will deliver the annual state of research address. This year’s address is titled “From Inputs to Impact: Changing the Conversation.” Too often, the conversation about higher education and research focuses on numbers. The quality of research and teaching is often measured by inputs, like people or grant awards, or outcomes, such as the number of publications or invention disclosures. While these are important, it is the impact of our research that really makes a difference.

It’s time for us to change the national dialogue to one that celebrates the value of research and the impact that it creates on our communities, the state, the nation and the world.

At the conclusion of the address, Dr. Whitacre will present the 2015 Innovator of the Year awards. Be one of the first to find out who will be this year’s Innovator of the Year, Early Career Innovator of the Year and Student Innovator of the Year.

Join us for a reception honoring the 2015 Innovators in Woody’s Tavern immediately following the announcement.

The event is open to the entire research community. RSVP today.

For more information contact Beth Haas at haas.23@osu.edu.
