Faculty from Syracuse University and SyracuseCoE Partner institutions—SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) and SUNY Oswego—are invited to submit proposals for innovative research and development efforts in clean and renewable energy, energy efficiency and healthy buildings, and water resources. This funding is intended to catalyze externally-sponsored projects and to contribute to economic and workforce development of New York State businesses.
Up to $15,000 per award is available for projects without industry collaboration. Up to $25,000 per award is available for projects that engage a New York state company seeking technology, intellectual property or technoeconomic expertise. SyracuseCoE intends to make multiple awards under the announcement. Awards will total approximately $100,000 in this round. Funding is expected to be available starting in February 2022.
Proposals should address how the use of the Faculty Fellow seed funding could lead to a significant “next step” in research and technology development, strengthen New York industry engagement and help establish SyracuseCoE and its Partner institutions as thought leaders in the targeted area.
The 2022 Faculty Fellows Program is open to faculty members who hold full-time appointments at SyracuseCoE Academic Partner institutions: Syracuse University, SUNY ESF or SUNY Oswego. Tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty are eligible. SyracuseCoE welcomes proposals that engage multiple faculty members, including cross-campus teams from multiple departments, colleges and/or institutions. Teams are encouraged, but not required, to include non-university participants. However, funds may be disbursed only to academic institutions.
The deadline for proposals is 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 14, 2022. Read the full announcement and how to submit your proposal on the SyracuseCoE Faculty Fellows webpage.
