Five Quick-Turnaround, Actionable Research Projects Recommended for Funding

The goal of the Quick-Turnaround RFP is to elevate and fund projects that could make meaningful progress on the priorities Governor Hickenlooper set for the Colorado Lab within a short time period.  Twenty-two submissions were received, and the review process included consultation with state agency partners and feedback to research teams about how to further tailor their proposals to agency priorities.

The recommended projects share a strong commitment to mutualistic partnerships between research teams and government agencies.

The Colorado Lab is delighted to invest $269,326 in the Quick-Turnaround projects.  An additional one million dollars in funding is anticipated to be invested in actionable research during the 2019 calendar year.  For example, the Colorado Lab recently released another RFP:  Cross System, Actionable Social or Health Policy Research.
