UM-Dearborn and Flint Faculty are invited to the 2023 UM-Dearborn – UM-Flint Collaborative Research Series hosted by the University of Michigan Dearborn Office of Research and the University of Michigan Flint Office of Research & Economic Development. 

The series’ three events include research lightning talks by faculty from both campuses and networking, to help participants find potential research collaborators. At the conclusion of the series, teams led by PIs from both campuses (one PI from Dearborn and one PI from Flint) will have an opportunity to apply for collaborative research grants ranging from $20,000 to $40,000. The award criteria will focus on developing cross-campus research collaborations with potential for external funding.
