Earlier this year, Case Western Reserve University was accepted into the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN), a collaboration of higher education institutions to foster public interest technology.
Now, CWRU faculty and staff are invited to participate in the PIT-UN Challenge, which seeks to encourage new ideas, foster collaborations and incentivize resource- and information-sharing among network members. Proposals should address one of the following priority areas:
- Educational offerings;
- Career pipeline/placement; or
- Faculty and institution building.
Proposals are invited in three funding tranches. Budgets should be inclusive of an indirect rate, set at 20% of total direct costs:
- Up to $45,000 for direct and indirect costs;
- Up to $90,000 for direct and indirect costs; or
- Up to $180,000 for direct and indirect costs.
The Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS) will host a free information session about the challenge for faculty and staff Thursday, May 20, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Register for the session.
