Home > Press > Nano/Bio Call for Proposals: Innovation Awards

The Nano/Bio Interface Center (NBIC) announces a call for proposals for the Innovation Award Program for awards beginning September 2007. The Innovation Award Program facilitates new research in areas of interest to the mission of the Center. The goals of the program are two-fold:

to explore research directions that shape the evolution of NBIC core research, and

to expand the Nano/Bio Interface research across the campus.

Typical grants are $30k-$50k for a 12-month period.

To apply for an Innovation Award submit an electronic version of a proposal to the NBIC via Natasha Charles ( ) by February 7, 2007. Forms for proposal submission can be found on the web at: .

Nano/Bio Call for Proposals: Innovation Awards

Philadelphia, PA | Posted on January 30th, 2007

The proposal should include:

A description of the technical issue that will be addressed
An outline of the approach that will be taken
Relation to NBIC current or potential research directions
Impact expected from the results (including proposals that will be submitted based on the results)
Tangible outcome of any previous Innovation Awards (including proposals that were funded based on the results)
2 page CV

The project description should be on the order of 2-3 pages. Proposals will be evaluated by the NBIC Executive Committee and notification of awards will be made by February 20, 2007
