IIT’s Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research (WISER) has issued a Request for Proposals for the 2017 Interdisciplinary Seed Funding Grants (ISFG) program. Initiated in 2009, the ISFG program is designed to support and enhance new and innovative multidisciplinary research concepts that are expected to attract major external funding in areas of national interest related to energy and sustainability. The ISFG program provides IIT faculty with the opportunity to conduct interdisciplinary research initiatives and obtain proof of their innovative proposal concepts, which will enable them to develop more nationally competitive proposals. Proposals must be submitted electronically by Mon., March 20, 2017, to the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs in conformance with the ISFG Submission Guidelines provided below. Questions should be directed to Peg Murphy, email@example.com (ext. 76881).
