ORIED Announces Inaugural GRIP Winners

The Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development (ORIED) is extremely pleased to announce the teams who were selected as winners of GRIP awards. The GRIP initiative was conceived to incentivize NC State faculty to think “outside-the-box”, and to stimulate collaborations across college and institutional boundaries. The response was overwhelming: ORIED received 59 pre-proposals that spanned all 10 NC State colleges, included more than 300 NC State faculty, and involved talented collaborators at RTI, Duke, and UNC-Chapel Hill.

It was a difficult decision, but in the end, four project teams were chosen. To learn more about the winners, follow the link below.
