Challenge-Based Research Funding Program
Call for Proposals 2022
At Tecnológico de Monterrey we have defined a Vision 2030 which aims to develop "leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship for human flourishing." Through our activities and results, we will be actively contributing to an ecosystem where national and international talent can work collaboratively, exploring different research venues and generating innovative and radical solutions for widespread challenges found in different industries and society. By promoting scientific research through this call, we will contribute directly to developing Tecnológico de Monterrey's vision for 2030: "Research, innovation, and entrepreneurial ecosystem1”. Furthermore, the impact, results, and outcomes of Tecnológico de Monterrey's research will become the main factors that will distinguish us as a leading world-class research university creating interdisciplinary solutions and technology-based enterprises to address society’s challenges.
To achieve our vision, Tec de Monterrey has created an intramural fund to develop research and technological development through interdisciplinary research, led by extraordinary talent focused on creating solutions that generate a positive impact on the pressing challenges in which Tecnológico de Monterrey has decided to focus.
