The Energy, Policy, and Innovation Center is accepting submissions for the Winter 2017 Open Request for Proposals. The funding to be awarded under this RFP is one of the several means by which EPICenter accomplishes its mission.
Proposals from researchers within the Georgia Tech community, individually or with collaborative partners, will be accepted within the three primary categories listed below.
Proposals are solicited for policy-related studies that address center goals. In particular, study ideas are solicited that serve as "add-ons" to existing projects (e.g., state, federal, or industrially funded) at Georgia Tech or regional project partners. Proposals in this category should address a distinctly regional view and leverage funds that the proposer has already obtained. Add-on studies will be on the order of $10 - 20K. Special consideration will be given to efforts that encourage collaboration with researchers and stakeholders in the Southeast region.
Proposals are solicited for faculty interested in hosting individual seminars or seminar series that address center goals. It is anticipated that such requests would range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT
Proposals are sought for the development of education and workforce related outreach tools. These could be addressed to the general public, students, specialists, the media, or other stakeholders. This category also includes official content in a module format that could support a formal undergraduate energy-oriented course. It is anticipated that such requests would be up to about $10K.
