The Research Office has become aware of the following National Science Foundation (NSF) program. Please forward this funding opportunity to faculty that may be interested.
NSF – Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) Program
To ensure coordination of effort, the Research Office is asking for a short statement of intent from PIs that are interested in submitting a proposal to the NSF – I/UCRC program. The statement should include a brief description of the proposed scope of work and identification of all investigators and partners. Submit statement of intent to Debbie Delmore, Research Office at email@example.com by Monday, October 14, 2013.
The I/UCRC program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. The centers are catalyzed by a small investment from the NSF and are primarily supported by industry center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in the development and evolution of the center. Each center is established to conduct research that is of interest to both the industry members and the center faculty. An I/UCRC contributes to the nation’s research infrastructure base and enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education. As appropriate, an I/UCRC uses international collaborations to advance these goals within the global context.
NSF Letter of Intent Deadline: January 6, 2014
