Big Hairy Grants: How to Build an Interdisciplinary Team

It’s easy to stay tucked away in your niche research area, especially when being part of an interdisciplinary team can feel like uncertain territory. Presenters Brad Day (Associate Vice Chancellor for Research & Innovation Initiatives), Mingzhou Jin (Industrial & Systems Engineering), Chien-fei Chen (CURENT and Electrical Engineering & Computer Science), and Amy Elias (Director of the Humanities Center) will talk about their involvement with interdisciplinary teams and make recommendations for faculty who want to take their research further afield.

About the Series:

Big Hairy Grants is a workshop series for arts and humanities faculty who find grants to be somewhere on the spectrum from bewildering to terrifying, or possibly even completely irrelevant. Through informal presentations and open conversations, faculty will learn to navigate the often intimidating, sometimes bureaucratic, but ultimately rewarding world of grants.
