SyracuseCoE Faculty Fellows Program 2023 Call for Proposals: Research & Technology Seed Funding Available

SyracuseCoE is seeking applications for its 2023 Faculty Fellows program. Proposals are invited from faculty researchers for innovative research and development efforts in SyracuseCoE’s focus areas:

  • Healthy and Efficient Buildings
  • Clean Energy
  • Resilient, Low Carbon Communities

Funding amounts of 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 NYS company seeking technology, intellectual property, or technoeconomic expertise. SyracuseCoE intends to make multiple awards.

Award funds may be used to support the project many ways, including:

  • Research, development and demonstration expenses
  • Market or policy analysis
  • Project supplies
  • Use of labs and equipment
  • Student employment
  • SyracuseCoE events that further research and collaboration
  • Travel for scholarly purposes or SyracuseCoE business

The purpose of the program is to catalyze new, externally sponsored research at Syracuse University and its Partner organizations, ultimately contributing to economic and workforce development for NYS businesses. Beginning in 2015, the program has supported 59 researchers with 87 awards with approximately $923,500 in project funding.

To be eligible to apply, faculty members must hold full-time appointments at a SyracuseCoE Academic Partner institution: Syracuse University, SUNY-ESF and SUNY Oswego. Tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty are eligible.

Proposals are especially encouraged that emphasize use-inspired research that have the potential to lead to new and useful methods and procedures, software and hardware platforms and licensable patents. Cross-campus teams from multiple departments, colleges and institutions that engage multiple faculty members are also welcomed.

The deadline for applications is April 21st. For detailed information about this request for proposals and how to submit an application, visit the 2023 SyracuseCoE Faculty Fellows Program webpage.

The program is funded by Empire State Development Division of Science, Technology & Innovation (ESD/NYSTAR).
