ICYMI: COVID-19 ASU Research Updates

This message was distributed by Dave White on Monday, April 6, on behalf of Ann Marie Hess, Capture Manager, Global Futures Laboratory, with COVID-19 research updates and resources.

Hello: I am writing to you with the purpose of sharing a few resources that ASU has put together regarding our response to the emerging challenges to our society. This is to offer ways to connect and share/generate both ideas and resources. ASU’s colleges/schools/units are already active with resources and intellectual capacity. Knowledge Enterprise is working to connect these activities across the university, with the goal of offering a method of communication.

They have created a Google Form that will be active through the life of the crisis. They will do a monthly data pull with everyone’s information. Please complete this form. In addition, there has been a Slack channel created: https://covid19-research.slack.com/. This channel offers you the ability to connect with current working groups with specific topics. These working groups will be self-guided and will not be managed by anyone other than the working group teams.

In addition, KE has also created a funding opportunities section that is solely related to COVID-19, this will provide high-level opportunities for the entire university. In addition, the NSF Rapid mechanism was last updated on April 3, 2020. This proposal is only 5 pages and allows up to $200k for a one year project. Prior to submission, you must first submit a project summary to your NSF Program Officer. If you have questions regarding this specific opportunity please contact your Research Administrator.

One last thing- There are 2 ASU websites that are resources to you during this time.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our office at: [email protected].
