CU Boulder researchers raised a record $684.2 million in fiscal year 2022-2023 for studies that will, among other things, advance quantum science in Colorado, solve mysteries about the sun and provide even better data on sea ice , ice caps, glaciers and more.

The recently released figures for sponsored research funding reflect an increase of 4% on the previous year.

The majority of research funding, or 71%, comes from federal agencies, including NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Commerce, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Energy. The state of Colorado contributed 3% of the total. Nonprofits and international organizations supported CU Boulder’s research and creative work 11%; industry accounted for 5%; and other universities provided 6% of the funding.

The CU Boulder funding is part of the $1.6 billion awarded to all four system campuses in the 2022-2023 fiscal year, representing a 9% increase over the previous year.

“Our annual research funding is a very important measure of the impact of CU Boulder’s research and innovation enterprise,” said Massimo Ruzzene, vice chancellor for research and innovation and dean of the Institutes. “While there are numerous ways to measure impact, the funding we attract year after year fuels a wide range of research and creative developments and reinforces our status as one of the country’s top research universities.”

At CU Boulder, here are some highlights of the research program:

New start-up subsidies bring quantum from the laboratory to the market

CU Boulder has long been recognized as a world leader in quantum research and education. A new grant awarded by the State of Colorado Economic Development Commission plans to go one step further by investing in the “quantum ecosystem” across the state. The project created two seed grants, administered by CU Boulder’s CUbit Quantum Initiative, that can be used by any research institution or industry partner in Colorado.
