MCubed is an U-M initiative to stimulate interdisciplinary research, potentially using high-risk approaches that might be harder to fund through more traditional mechanisms. Faculty from at least two different campus units may form a trio and request either $60K or $15K to advance their idea right away.

MCubed is part of the¬†Third Century Initiative, established¬†by the provost and president in anticipation of the university’s bicentennial celebration in 2017.
