Office of Research - Zumberge RCTB Award
The Zumberge Research Coordination & Team Building (RCTB) award provides opportunities to foster new collaborations between USC faculty, as well as between USC and other research institutions nationally, with the goal to support faculty teams working on collaborative, multidisciplinary new research projects.
The RCTB award does not fund primary research. Rather, the program supports the means by which investigators can share information and ideas, coordinate ongoing or planned research activities, and foster synthesis and new collaborations. The proposed activities should establish the foundation for members of the collaborative group to create new research projects as well as develop working relationships with state and federal funding agencies and foundations.
Support will be provided for teams of investigators to communicate and coordinate their efforts across disciplinary, organizational, institutional, and geographical boundaries. The objectives are to facilitate open communication and exchange of information and resources as well as to integrate research.
