Collaborative Collisions are interdisciplinary networking events for Florida State University researchers. Hosted by the Office of Proposal Development, Collaborative Collisions allow researchers from all Colleges, Departments, and Centers to come together to discuss possible collaborations surrounding a defined topics. The goal of Collaborative Collision events is to foster interdisciplinary collaborations by providing an atmosphere to discuss researcher’s expertise, potential contributions to a research team, and partnerships to enhance their own research.

Collaborative Collision 2018 will feature a keynote presentation by Dr. Bindu Nair, Deputy Director of the United States Department of Defense, Basic Research Office. Dr. Nair will discuss her office’s research and funding interests, as well as opportunities to work with the Department of Defense on a broad range of topics.

New this year, the Office of Proposal Development is pleased to announce the availability of competitive funding for project teams that form as a result of Collaborative Collision. The Collaborative Collision seed fund will award one grant for up to $25,000 to the most promising new team that can demonstrate a future path towards external funding.
