Core Incentive Plan (CIP) Program
Core Incentive Plan (https://core.uconn.edu/cip/) awards will allow faculty to generate data for extramural funding opportunities, test a new technology that has historically been cost-prohibitive, or explore an entirely new field of research without the full financial burden typically associated with preliminary experiments. The participating core facilities are featured on both the Storrs and Farmington campuses. Each facility features diverse and advanced instrumentation plus talented experts in each respective field to guide CIP awardees to completion of an entirely new research project. Only select facilities that are administratively housed within the Center for Open Research Resources (COR²E) and Health Center Research Advisory Council (HCRAC) will be eligible for the CIP program.
