Impact Through Grant Funding
Traditionally, early-career scientists and those with more novel approaches to their research face considerable difficulty securing funding for their work. This is partly due to the higher-risk nature of their work, while both established scientists and those pursuing proven methods of study are considered less risky to fund. New Vision Research alters the current landscape of funding by intentionally connecting and supporting early-career researchers with innovative ideas through CCAD.
While NVR acknowledges the selection bias of the data below, by tracking the career trajectory of CCAD nominees, attendees and awardees over the past seven years, it is apparent that the opportunities afforded to the CCAD community serve as a significant boost to their ability to secure subsequent funding. This is a testament to the impact of cross-field collaboration and seed funding for early-career scientists and their affiliated institutions and organizations.
