‘MCubed’ as the University announced on Wednesday, May 12, 2012, was to be “a bold, new way to fund research” stating that this “first-of-its-kind, real-time research funding initiative at U-M puts $15 million into the hands of professors to jumpstart new projects they believe in.” This new research funding system was initially set up as a two-year pilot program, but it is currently in its third multi-year session (2018-2020).
