WISER Extends Deadline for 2020 Seed Funding Grant Submissions to April 15

PLEASE NOTE THE REVISED DEADLINE FOR WISER CSFG PROPOSAL SUBMISSION INDICATED BELOW

IIT’s Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research (WISER) has issued a Request for Proposals for the 2020 Cross-disciplinary Seed Funding Grants (CSFG) program.  Initiated in 2009, the CSFG program is designed to support and enhance new and innovative cross-disciplinary research concepts that are expected to attract major external funding in areas of national interest related to energy and sustainability. The CSFG program provides IIT faculty with the opportunity to conduct cross-disciplinary research initiatives and obtain proof of their innovative proposal concepts, which will enable them to develop more nationally competitive proposals.

Note:  Due to the scheduling disruption caused by rapidly evolving COVID-19 precautions, WISER has extended the deadline for electronic proposal submission to close of business (5:00 pm) on Wed., April 15, 2020, to the Office of Sponsored Research, in conformance with the WISER 2020 CSFG Proposal Submission Guidelines provided below. 

Important 
Note: WISER 2020 Guidelines for Submission contain significant changes to previous years' procedures (specifically including PI eligibility requirements and Cayuse routing form/submission instructions) and should be read closely before submission.

All questions should be directed to Margaret Murphy (murphym@iit.edu, ext. 76881).
