Sponsors of all types are increasingly limiting the number of submissions an organization may make to any given program. This helps the sponsor manage workflow, but places an additional responsibility on the submitting organization. The articles below describe processes for the internal review and approval of certain limited submission programs in which RIT participates. For programs not described below, please use the Intent to Submit Form.
Synopsis. The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program initially has one priority research theme - Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme.
The Center for Emerging & Innovative Sciences (CEIS) utilizes New York State funding to support company-sponsored research conducted by Principal Investigators (PIs) at the University of Rochester, Rochester Institute of Technology, and other regional universities. CEIS support is limited to research funded by companies that have an operational presence in New York and will be able to leverage the results of that research to make an economic impact in the state.
Synopsis. The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a fourth year of a program on collaborative research and education in the area of scalable nanomanufacturing, including the long-term societal implications of the large-scale implementation of nanomanufacturing innovations.
Synopsis. This solicitation aims at introducing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. The focus of the FY 2014 competition is on nanoscale engineering education with relevance to devices and systems and/or on the societal, ethical, economic and/or environmental issues relevant to nanotechnology.
