ICTAS is soliciting proposals for its Engineering Faculty Organization - Opportunity (EFO-O) Seed Investment Grants. These grants support transdisciplinary teams led by Virginia Tech engineering faculty, and are intended to fund research that will result in more competitive proposals for external funding opportunities. In FY22, up to 10 one-year $10,000 seed grants will be awarded, with anticipated support beginning October 18, 2021. Research teams must be headed by a faculty member in the College of Engineering and include faculty from multiple departments and/or colleges.
Applications, including a two-page project proposal and two-page faculty bios, are due by September 26th, 2021. Proposals should cite specific external funding opportunities faculty teams intend to target. Winners will be notified by October 15. More details are available on the ICTAS website.
