The Connected Futures Research and Prototyping Challenge is an opportunity for faculty, researchers and students to collaborate on prototyping new media projects across a range of areas such as the internet of things, empowering citizen journalism, virtual reality and more. University teams from accredited NYC universities are eligible to apply for up to $25,000 in funding for their projects. The application is live at: bit.ly/verizonchallenge<http://bit.ly/verizonchallenge> and the application deadline is December 15th. Selected teams will be notified on December 18th, and the program will begin in late January. The program includes three monthly feedback sessions in February, March and April for the teams to report on their prototyping progress. The feedback panels will include faculty experts and Verizon executives who will offer advice on prototype development. Questions?
