The UTEP Interdisciplinary Research (IDR) Symposium seeks to build on the momentum of campus IDR activities that have included connection-building events & increased interest in interdisciplinary research funds. The symposium typically includes an opening reception with poster presentations followed the next day with various sessions exploring the symposium’s theme. The 2014 theme was Rewarding and Recognizing Interdisciplinary Research. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help plan the next symposium.
The Provost and the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects issue a Request for Proposals for interdisciplinary research enhancement on an annual and/or biannual basis. Awards to interdisciplinary teams are typically in the amount of $20,000 per team. Eligibility requirements, authorized use of funds, proposal structure, review processes and criteria, & requirements of awardees are described in the RFP. Term of the award is typically one year. To date, there have been four rounds of funding.

The growing scale of science has been accompanied by a shift toward collaborative research, referred to as "team science." Scientific research is increasingly conducted by small teams and larger groups rather than individual investigators, but the challenges of collaboration can slow these teams' progress in achieving their scientific goals. How does a team-based approach work, and how can universities and research institutions support teams?
Facilitating Interdisciplinary Research examines current interdisciplinary research efforts and recommends ways to stimulate and support such research.
This report identifies steps that researchers, teachers, students, institutions, funding organizations, and disciplinary societies can take to more effectively conduct, facilitate, and evaluate interdisciplinary research programs and projects.
ORSP’s Interdisciplinary Network Manager invites academic units, Centers, and/or UTEP stakeholders to co-plan Faculty Engagement Encounters. Contact email@example.com. These events are intended to facilitate the expansion of each participant’s intellectual and/or professional support base, create an environment conducive to networking, and expand a participant’s knowledge base. Past events have centered on such topics as community engagement and Department of Homeland Security thrust areas.
