Five research teams are pursuing new interdisciplinary projects over a two-year period (2020-2022) as grant recipients of the Interdisciplinary Innovation Initiative (I3) sponsored by the Kennesaw State University Research and Service Foundation (KSURSF). Teams were selected through a competitive process after a university-wide call for proposals.  

Spearheaded by the Office of Research, the I3 grants program was created to stimulate innovation, capacity-building and sustainability of interdisciplinary research and scholarly activity around four broad research themes – Biomedical and Health Services, Computing and Technology, Human Development and Well-Being, and Sustainable and Safe Communities.

Each of the five interdisciplinary teams received between $50,000 and $75,000 to address key aspects within these broad themes with the expectation to later seek external funding on their initial work. Undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to engage with faculty as part of the research teams. The five teams, made up of KSU faculty, also include collaboration with external partners.
