InScope: IUPUI research awards increased by $40.5 million in 2016

The IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research has released funding results for fiscal year 2016 showing research awards campuswide totaled $428.9 million, a $40.5 million increase over 2015.

Counting only non-IU School of Medicine awards, the campus received $67.2 million in research awards in 2016, compared to $58.1 million in 2015, a 16 percent increase.

The increase in research awards reflects, in part, the support of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research to advance innovative research and creative activity.

Funding awards for 2016 show an increase in National Science Foundation awards, one of the office’s strategic goals. NSF funding rose from $5.2 million in 2015 to $7.9 million in 2016.
