Transdisciplinary Research

The Transdisciplinary Research Program is a one-time, two-year grant program that promotes cross-disciplinary, collaborative research addressing at least three of the MnDRIVE research areas.

In 2014, nearly $6 million was awarded to 12 transdisciplinary research projects. The awards benefitted approximately 90 researchers in 16 colleges and 50 departments across 3 U of M campuses. More than 30 external partners were involved, including state agencies and industry leaders such as 3M, Cargill and Great River Energy.
