Three College of Science faculty members are among eight at Notre Dame to be awarded Luksburg Foundation Collaboration Grants for projects with Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) faculty in Santiago, Chile.
Through a generous gift, the Luksburg Foundation began this grant program in 2013 with Notre Dame International and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies to encourage collaboration between Notre Dame and PUC faculty to further their research. Grants have been awarded over the years to more than 40 projects in 20 disciplines.
“This is a tremendous program for Notre Dame faculty and staff to engage in collaborative projects ranging from cultural studies to economics, physics to theatre with colleagues at the Catholic University in Chile,” said Steve Reifenberg, co-director of the Integration Lab of the Keough School of Global Affairs and a Kellogg Fellow. “The cumulative impact of these investments over the past four years has been remarkable in building long-term relationships and research partnerships.”
