'Science of Virtues' project in Illinois

Jokes about current US state politics aside, we have just come across this site , which appears to have something in common with our project. They describe themselves as follows:

"The Arete Initiative at the University of Chicago is pleased to announce a new $3 million research program on a New Science of Virtues. This is a multidisciplinary research initiative that seeks contributions from individuals and from teams of investigators working within the humanities and the sciences. We support highly original, scholarly projects that demonstrate promise of a distinctive contribution to virtue research and have the potential to begin a new field of interdisciplinary study."
