President’s Global Innovation Fund Awardees - Rio de Janeiro
This program is designed to provide support for faculty who wish to use the resources or facilities of one or more of the University’s eight Global Centers for teaching or research activities. The aim is to increase opportunities for research, teaching and service around the world.
Below are the results of the competition for faculty grants that will take place in the region from the proposals to the President’s Global Innovation Fund (PGIF). The 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.
