Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers Program (IUCRC) – Prelim. Proposal September 8
Seeks to connect industry partners and government agencies directly and efficiently with university researchers for primary objectives:
1) Conduct high-impact research to meet shared and critical industrial needs in companies of all sizes;
2) Enhance U.S. global leadership in driving innovative technology development, and
3) Identify, mentor and develop a diverse, highly skilled science and engineering workforce
Industry is defined very broadly to include companies (large and small), startups and non-profit organizations.
Planning Grants: $20K,Phase I: $150K/yr, Phase II: $100K/yr, Phase II+: $150K/yr, Phase III: $50K/yr.
Other Opportunities and Announcements
NSF EHR Core Research (ECR:Core) – October 7
For fundamental research (curiosity-driven basic research and use-inspired basic research) that contributes to the general, explanatory knowledge that underlies STEM education in one or more of the three broadly conceived Research Areas: Research on STEM Learning and Learning Environments, Research on Broadening Participation in STEM fields, and Research on STEM Workforce Development. Within this framework, the ECR program supports a wide range of fundamental STEM education research activities, aimed at learners of all groups and ages in formal and informal settings.
Level I to $500K; Level II up to $1.5M; Level III up to $2.5M.
Calling for Fundamental STEM Education Research proposals from Minority-Serving Institution Faculty – July 8, 2-3:30PM ET
Submitting a proposal intake form will help streamline the proposal process. This initiates a proposal in Cayuse, notifies OSP, and enables Research Development Specialists to connect with you. For best support, contact us early and ensure you meet institutional deadlines.
Feel free to reach out to us with questions; we look forward to working with you!
