The Institute for People and Technology brings research and engagement opportunities to Georgia Tech faculty through grants, partnerships, and networking.
The Georgia Smart Communities Challenge (“Georgia Smart”) is a funding and technical assistance program for local governments within the State of Georgia. Georgia Smart is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for communities of any size in Georgia to receive grant funding and support that enables them to envision, explore, and plan for their “smart” future.
With the aim of speeding up development, testing and dissemination of evidence-based interventions for mild cognitive impairment (MCI), the Innovation Accelerator (IA) core of the Cognitive Empowerment Program is offering seed grants to support research in the following areas: therapeutic programming, technology, and the built environment.
The Institute for People and Technology is pleased to announce the results of our first Smart & Connected Communities Data Pilot Grant program. These pilot grants will provide funding for one semester to further interdisciplinary research within the area of Smart & Connected Communities.
The grant program is open to faculty, students, and research scientists of Georgia Tech. Grants can be used to support the development of new hardware or new applications; fund the design and evaluation of new wearable technologies; or create new opportunities for internal or external collaboration, such as through workshops or speaker series.
The Georgia Center for Diabetes Translation Research (Georgia CDTR) is a collaboration of Emory University, Georgia Tech and Morehouse School of Medicine, with funding provided by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and interinstitutional partners. The mission of the center is to facilitate and grow diabetes translation research at Emory, its partner institutions, and regionally. In alignment with this mission, this Request for Pilot and Feasibility Applications is a solicitation for small grant proposals that focus on Type II translation research in diabetes care and prevention.
Georgia Tech and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announce the CDC/Georgia Tech Research Awards, which provides funding to foster scientific collaboration among Georgia Tech and CDC investigators. This joint effort is a CDC/Georgia Tech seed award program that supports pilot research in the form of proof of concept and feasibility projects that will advance the state of the science to facilitate scientific innovation (e.g. patents and publications), new external funding, and novel collaborative relationships.
