Global Health Seed Grants foster new interdisciplinary research collaborations to advance new global health research
A partnership between the Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility and the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety awards a special subset of seed grants referred to as Consortium on One Medicine One Science (COMOS) Seed Grants. In addition to the goals of encouraging interdisciplinary research and partnerships between U of M faculty and global instutitions, COMOS Seed Grants prioritize projects that:
- Address complex systems or problems that require a strong interdisciplinary component besides Health Science;
- Contribute to build international networks (including individuals and institutions)
- Use, or explore the use of best practices in health data governance
- Include a component of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) or economic or financial analysis of a health-related issue
The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) at the University of Minnesota supports annual seed grant proposals for international health research projects in locations where the AHC maintains hubs of innovation or is actively exploring opportunities to advance new research opportunities: Africa, Asia, and Latin America/Caribbean.
The goals of these seed grants are to:
- Seed new global health research studies by UMN faculty that have potential to attract future funding from external sources;
- Encourage interdisciplinary research;
- Support new partnerships between UMN faculty and global institutions;
- Create a mechanism to involve students in faculty-led international research studies.
Applications are currently closed and will be available again in Spring 2020.
