NKU Students at a laptop

The INFORMATICS+ Project Grant program funds high-impact student-involved R&D and creative projects that connect students to the region and the world and leverage the power of informatics in a variety of settings.

The nature of proposed projects can vary widely. Examples might include researching the local impact of certain information technologies, building digital solutions that help a community, or documenting stories of people whose voices have not been heard. Informatics, broadly construed, refers to all the disciplines that have information at their core, and ranges from media and communication to software design and analytics. It is about creating meaning in a world of data.

The College of Informatics invites proposals from faculty across campus. Although informatics students or faculty should be among those involved in each project, projects that engage colleges outside the COI are specifically encouraged, and nothing precludes the project lead from being a non-COI faculty or staff member.

Projects were funded in Spring and Fall 2020. To read more about program, visit here.  If funding allows, a third RFP will be available for Fall 2021.
