    Like Argonne collaborations, new initiative promotes Fermilab-University research projects

    The University has announced a program to initiate new projects that provide the basis for future collaborative research with Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.

    The program is in addition to the already existing Argonne-University of Chicago Strategic Collaborative Initiative; however, proposals under the new program that include researchers from Argonne National Laboratory also will be considered under the new initiative, explained Donald Levy, Vice President for Research and National Laboratories.

    “I am pleased to announce this new program of Strategic Collaborative Initiatives designed to provide support for collaborative research projects between University of Chicago faculty and Fermilab scientists/engineers,” Levy wrote in an e-mail sent to University scientists.

    Proposals must include at least one applicant from each institution. Proposal budgets should be in the range of $50,000 to $100,000 for one year. The deadline for the first round of proposals is Saturday, June 30.

    Support for ongoing work or work being performed mainly by one of the principal investigators will not be considered.
