Organizing the ideas, projects, and funding opportunities that come to life at UA's Office of Global Initiatives (OGI)
OGI's Opportunity Tracker tab in Maps.Global is a crucial tool advertising funding opportunities available to UA researchers working internationally: tagging geographic location and team particulars (institution, NGO & industry partners; academic research team members & OGI leads). To view international projects and opportunities where the UA is actively engaged, check out Opportunity Tracker in Maps.Global.

About the Opportunity Tracker
The Opportunity Tracker was concepted, designed and programmed by Ash Scheder Black, Director of Technology (with special thanks to Randy Burd for channeling Steve Jobs during the feedback phases). The immediate members of the Office of Global Initiatives required a way for all employees to keep track of networking opportunities, contracts, relevant partners, funding sources and any generally interesting new ideas. The technical team at OGI worked together to assemble a fast and responsive repository for all UA connections across the globe.
