Fifteen collaborative research grants were awarded to Notre Dame faculty and research partners around the world. Notre Dame International released the list of recipients for the 2018 fall grant cycle for the Asia Research Collaboration Grant, Luksic Family Collaboration Grant, and Mexico Faculty Grant Program.
The Luksic Family Collaboration Grant has funded 46 projects since 2013 for research collaboration with Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), a leading Catholic research university in Latin America, with more than 16 units on campus participating. The collaborations with PUC have also facilitated the joint doctoral programs with the College and Science and College of Engineering.
The Mexico Faculty Grant Program, initiated in 2017, has led to research collaborations with more than 14 institutions in Mexico.
The Asia Research Collaboration Grant, initiated in 2017, funded projects in Greater China and India during its first two cycles. In order to be responsive to faculty interests, this cycle expanded the program to include countries throughout Asia. As a result, projects will be funded for Greater China, India, Japan, and Bangladesh.
“The primary goal for the international research grant programs is to help faculty expand the international reach of their research,” says Jonathan Noble, assistant provost for internationalization.
