The Smart Energy and Health Sciences Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence were established in 2013 to advance smart energy and health sciences-related research and scholarship in which Binghamton University has significant existing strength and can achieve international prominence. The University's Road Map Initiative provided funding to leverage the campus' infrastructure and expertise with the goal of seeking and receiving a national research center designations in these broad areas. The TAEs established Collaboration Grants Program with these funds, issued Requests for Proposals and awarded three smart-energy grants and four health-sciences grants for projects under way December 2013-July 2014. Projects will be mentored by the TAEs and success will be measured by an increase in sponsored program activity. A second RFP is under development for 2014-15.
