To best support the University of Utah Remote and Austere Conditions (RAC) Grand Challenge initiative, the VPR Office is hosting a series of virtual team building and information sessions designed to help proposers answer questions about the Grand Challenge, receive feedback/input on their concept, find new collaborators or team-members, become a collaborator on a RAC project, and more. This event is open to all interested in the program. As a reminder, the RAC Grand Challenge seeks to fund innovative research projects that focus on developing novel techniques, technologies, equipment, and methods for remote and austere environments (including those in medical care). Awards will be up to $250,000 of direct costs and indirect costs will not be provided. Those interested in submitting to the RAC Grand Challenge are strongly encouraged to attend one or more virtual sessions.  

 These virtual sessions will be held on:  

  • Wednesday, January 31, 2024 | 12pm-1pm 
  • Monday, February 5, 2024 | 12pm-1pm 

Registration is required for these events. You will not receive the Zoom details for these events until you register. Please contact the RAC Grand Challenge Team with questions about this event or the RAC Grand Challenge competition details.
