NU Interdisciplinary 1-2-3 Program
The Interdisciplinary 1-2-3 Program was developed in response to gaps and needs that were identified as possibly hindering the pursuit of bold research at Northwestern University. Such barriers include: need for proactive planning and exploration of novel ideas, need for fast-track approvals for resources, need for supporting team-based proposal development, and lack of seed funding to “nucleate” new groups of researchers. This program is designed to eliminate these barriers and enable faculty to “jump start” innovative science in a risk-tolerant environment.
