OpenGrounds and Vonage Sponsor ‘Virality’ Research

U.Va.’s OpenGrounds and Vonage are at it again — this time partnering to sponsor research on the viral spread of information as a characteristic of instantaneous global communication.

Faculty and graduate students are invited to apply by April 20 to be a part of a multi-disciplinary group, made up of two to three research teams. Each of the teams will be awarded $15,000-$25,000 to conduct their research and collaborate with the other teams over an eight-month period (May-December 2013).

OpenGrounds and Vonage previously partnered to sponsor a competition for students to “invent the future of social messaging.” First-year engineering student Brent Baumgartner took home the top prize and $15,000 for his location-based “Attendr” concept.
