In its inaugural cycle, the GCI grant competition elicited strong faculty interest across campus. Twenty-four proposals were submitted from researchers representing more than 15 departments in the Colleges of Arts and Letters, Engineering, and Science, as well as the School of Architecture.

Nine awards were selected to fund research initiatives in collaboration with other universities and research organizations as diverse as Fudan University, University of Oxford, University of Milan, University of Haifa, Chinese Academy of Science, and the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance, among others.  Several initiatives make extensive use of the Notre Dame Global Gateway locations in London, Rome and Jerusalem.

“We are delighted at the success of the inaugural GCI Grant process,“ Norton says, “and look forward to seeing the research of the Notre Dame faculty further develop around the world.”
