Open Calls and Projects


Call for Seed and Project Proposals

The NGTC seeks original and innovative research proposals at all times. Our Seed and Project Grants are intended to support interdisciplinary research relating to the role of technology in society (this may, but does not necessarily need to, include policy or regulatory questions). Seed grants are generally intended to facilitate exploration of new research collaborations, and project grants are generally intended to support the development or implementation of a more specific project or idea. Awards are generally in the $5,000-$20,000 range, with a focus on high-impact proposals; in some cases larger awards may be possible.


Supplemental Research Proposals

Supplemental Research Awards provide supplemental research funding to individuals or teams that are already engaged in active research at the University of Nebraska. The goal of these grants is to facilitate consideration of law and policy topics relating to that ongoing research. This effort is twofold: in the near term, to encourage researchers developing new technologies to consider potential policy aspects of their research, and in the longer term, to facilitate new interdisciplinary collaborations. Supplemental Research Awards generally provide $5,000-$10,000 current research projects to facilitate consideration of relevant law and policy issues.

Programs are part of The Menard Governance and Technology Programming Series
