Through this grant program, the Rhode Island Science and Technology Advisory Council (STAC) will award funding of up to $200,000 per project to collaborative, multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary, catalytic research and development activities across the state’s academic and commercial research institutions. These awards are a direct investment of state funds to teams that are pioneering Rhode Island’s future through new ideas, technologies and innovations that are well positioned to attract follow-on investment.

Eligible projects must be catalytic in nature and clearly lead to commercialization or major new research opportunities that can be supported by federal agencies, corporations and/or foundations. Those proposals that support the three core S&T sectors identified in Rhode Island’s Science and Technology Plan, including those collaborations that fall at the convergence of these sectors, are particularly desirable. These three sectors are marine sciences and technology, life sciences and energy and the environment.

Pre-proposals are due September 30, 2010 with full proposals due October 28, 2010
Additional information on the program such as FAQs and a listing of previous grant awardee teams can be found on the STAC website.
