The EAR Program seeks to support key areas of research and creative activity strength on the IU Bloomington campus that are emerging, novel, current, in need of support, and are not necessarily as multidisciplinary as Grand Challenge initiatives. The research that is emerging or under development will capitalize on existing strengths on campus; have the potential for enhancing the volume, quality, impact, and reputation of research at IU Bloomington; and lead to federal, corporate, or private funding.
