Dear Colleagues,

Early new week I'll release a new funding opportunity for Early- and Mid-career researchers.  Frontiers will be high impact research collaborations that build on existing strengths but refocused to enable cross-Department and cross-Campus teams.  Funding will be provided to run workshops and host visitors.  Many thanks for those who contributed early feedback on this proposal.  The VC will be attending the School Forum to address questions around his Strategic Plan.
