Deadline for STAC Collaborative Research Grants is Jan. 23

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – Thursday, Jan. 23, is the deadline to submit preliminary proposals for the R.I. Science & Technology Advisory Council’s 2014 Collaborative Research Grant Awards program.

The Collaborative Research Grants are designed to encourage joint projects among the state’s universities, hospitals and other research organizations. Project teams applying for a grant must include investigators from at least two distinct entities, including at least one Rhode Island higher education institution or hospital that will serve as the primary grantee.

The council will award approximately $450,000 in competitive funding to joint research projects with the potential to license new intellectual property, attract follow-on funding, develop private-sector partnerships and bring new product lines to market.

Proposals must clearly show how the combined efforts of the investigators can lead to results that could not be achieved by either alone, according to the council. The maximum amount of any award is $75,000.

To date, STAC has awarded $8.5 million in grants through eight award rounds that have brought in $36 million in follow-on grant funding, according to the council.

Applicants must submit an electronic copy of a preliminary proposal by Jan. 23, 2014. Preliminary proposals will be reviewed for eligibility and suitability to the program’s objectives, and the most qualified projects will be invited to submit a full proposal, due by March 20, 2014.
