Innovation Funding

The Office of Dean for Research offers support for innovative research on projects that have tremendous promise but due to their risk of success may make them difficult to fund through traditional sources. Two funding programs are overseen by the Office of the Dean for Research, the Dean for Research Innovation Funds and the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund. These funds are awarded on a competitive basis each year to faculty research teams. 

"The University's support for early-stage research has a tremendous positive impact on the overall quality of the faculty and research at Princeton."

- Pablo Debenedetti, Dean for Research
