In an effort to enhance collaborative research between engineering and other units of the University and between Universities, the College of Engineering at the University of Miami has launched a sequence of Collaborative Research Exchange Forums (CREFs). CREFs focus on specific research areas at the interface of two disciplines with the purpose of encouraging funded collaborative research between faculty from the respective schools. CREFs are intended to start conversations focused on complementary research expertise among the two schools. The goal at the conclusion of this meeting is to start the process of identifying Request for Proposals (RFPs) for interdisciplinary research that can be submitted by faculty engineering and the collaborating school. Most CREFs are followed by an internal RFP where faculty compete for seed funding for proposals.
