I-CARES Funded Researchers

As part of its mission, I-CARES awards seed funding to Washington University faculty undertaking innovative and collaborative research in the broad areas of renewable energy and sustainability through an annual call for proposals.

2017 I-CARES Summer Internship

Ninety-four projects have been funded since the program was launched in 2008, funding collaborations between more than 35 external organizations and 166 individual researchers. These projects have culminated in exhibitions, new patents, scholarly publications, new collaborations, and success in obtaining external funding to extend the reach and impact of the research projects.

Current awards have been given to faculty in Arts & Sciences, the School of Engineering & Applied Science, the College of Architecture, the School of Social Work, the School of Medicine, and the Olin Business School.
