President’s Global Innovation Fund Awardees 2015 – Istanbul

Below are the results of the competition for faculty grants that will take place in the region from the first round of proposals to the President’s Global Innovation Fund (PGIF). The 16 projects receiving awards were selected by a review committee of senior faculty drawn from both the Morningside and medical campuses.

Many of the projects are led by a team of faculty members, and others are the work of a single Columbia scholar. All make use of our network of eight Columbia Global Centers on four continents, and will provide opportunities for faculty and students to address vital global issues. This year’s selected projects cover a vast range of disciplines and topics, from volcanoes to trade relations. See the full list of funded projects here.
