Call for proposals
The Research Innovation Committee is pleased to announce a call for proposals that address novel, high-risk ideas that could accelerate the College of Engineering taking lead on new centers and other collaborative proposals!
This is the first of three funding opportunities that the RIC expect to release for the 2014 year.
Friday, November 15, 2013, 9 AM
Room 1106 Mechanical Engineering Building
The research committee is charged with:
- Developing a roadmap that will identify grand challenges in engineering research that address national and societal issues and which we have or could have the ability to lead. By necessity this will include an assessment of our strengths and weakness in these areas that enable or prevent the college from assuming a research leadership role. This assessment includes but is not limited to faculty expertise and research infrastructure.
- Developing a set of institutional goals, initiatives and incentives that will influence the future research directions of the college. It is anticipated that the College will provide resources to the committee to launch new research initiatives that are consistent with the strategic plan.
- Reviewing and providing a recommendation to the College on internally funded research proposals, as well as centers and institutes proposed by faculty in the College.
