Collaboration Forum

One of the ways to improve your CDI Statement of Interest and final proposal is to have cross-Mission Area and cross-Center collaboration. If you have an idea for a CDI proposal but are looking for collaborators in other disciplines or centers to join you, post your idea and contact information on the collaboration forum. By posting your idea there, CDI Coordinators can help facilitate connections.
