RIC 2014-2015 Call for Proposals
The RIC anticipates releasing two calls for proposals during academic year 2014-2015 with anticipated award dates of November 15 and April 15. The deadline for submission of proposals will be announced early in the fall academic semester. We solicit three types of proposals: Support for Enhanced Competitiveness proposals that provide partial funding for extramural proposals not funded; Center-stimulation projects with the potential to better position the college in novel innovative research and multidisciplinary centers, and Program Concept Awards that can lay out a vision for a 5-10 year program in Advanced Manufacturing.
The purpose of this call for proposals is, in part, to stimulate new and innovative cross-college and cross-university initiatives led by the College of Engineering. The scope of the call covers basic and applied inquiry in engineering knowledge enrichment and service to society. The intent is to improve the competitiveness of extramural research proposals, explore new collaborations and/or facilitate submission of nationally competitive proposals for centers and other large-scale collaborative opportunities, and generate a concrete vision of how the thematic area of Advanced Manufacturing could be developed within the College of Engineering. The scope of the call includes projects that engage industry.
Funds to support proposals will come primarily from the Research Innovation Committee in the College of Engineering. Funding for successful proposals aligned with other college initiatives, such as the Wisconsin Materials Institute, will be coordinated with those initiatives.
The outcome of funded activities will be:
a. Resubmission or revised submission of an unfunded extramural proposal bolstered by additional preliminary results and/or attention to criticisms raised during external review.
b. Progress toward submission of an extramural application for a research center with annual funding at the level of $2-5M/year or greater for at least 5 years.
c. Well-defined targets of investment for Advanced Manufacturing.
