Eight projects approved for FY2023 UI P3 funding

The University of Iowa has awarded eight interdisciplinary projects with $15 million in funding generated by the public-private partnership (P3) with its utility system.

The approved projects were selected through a two-stage process. Thirty-three preliminary applications were submitted in response to a campuswide call in September 2021, and eight were invited by the university’s Strategy Team to submit full proposals. In March, the Strategy Team participated in an in-depth vetting of the eight applications and all eight were recommended for funding to President Barbara Wilson.

Wilson approved the eight projects and the P3 board approved the $15 million funding allocation at its May meeting.
