Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has created a seed fund to support multidisciplinary research at the private university.
Jonathon Dordick, vice president of research, says his office pledged up to $100,000 each to four research projects last month.
The funding is part of a new initiative, the knowledge and innovation program, that aims to broaden the multidisciplinary reach of research teams and position those teams to be competitive in securing external funding.
