IANR Celebrates Third Consecutive Year of Record-breaking Research Funding in 2022
Researchers in UNL’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources received nearly $71 million in externally sponsored research funding during the 2022 fiscal year – the highest annual total in the institute’s history.
The total 2022 awards exceeded the previous record of $63.9 million in 2021 by nearly 11%, and extends average annual increases of 6% since 2013. In all, University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers within IANR received 511 sponsored awards during the 2022 fiscal year, which ran from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022, including 14 awards of $1 million or more. This is the highest number of awards of $1 million or greater in a single year over the past decade.
“IANR has seen huge strides in its research funding over the past decade, which is a testament to the amazing work of our faculty, post-docs, students and staff across the institute,” said Mike Boehm, NU vice president and Harland vice chancellor for IANR. “We’ve hired many extraordinarily talented, hardworking, creative and collaborative scientists in the past decade, and the sharp rise in research funding is a direct reflection of their dedication and talent, and the talent of all of our faculty.”
