CONCERT Grant Program - Fall 2016 Application Window Closed

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 - 12:16pm

Proposals for the Fall 2016 round of RIEEE's CONCERT grant program were due Monday, October 17, 2016.  We anticipate releasing another call in Spring 2017.  Please watch for an announcement.

Funding will support new, existing, or developing research projects that involve more than one of the RIEEE core research areas and are performed by collaborative, interdisciplinary teams.   These research clusters may be composed of faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, EHRA staff, and others such as research professors and external collaborators.  Proposals should correspond to the missions of the Southern Appalachian Environmental Research and Education Center (SAEREC), the Center for Economic Research and Policy Analysis (CERPA), and the Appalachian Energy Center (AEC). We encourage projects involving the collection and analysis of “big data” to collaborate with faculty members in the Computer Science Department.  We further encourage PIs funded through the CONCERT mechanism to submit external proposals through RIEEE or the related centers. 

Standard Awards will support new and existing projects that contribute to more than one of the RIEEE core research areas.

Planning Awards will support the development of new projects that contribute to more than one of the RIEEE core research areas.

RIEEE/Office of Sustainability Awards will support new and existing projects that contribute to more than one of the RIEEE core research areas and have a strong emphasis on regional sustainable development.  These projects will be supported jointly by the RIEEE and the Office of Sustainability (sustain.appstate.edu).

Due Date:  October 17, 2016 by 5:00pm.
