Are you interested in receiving Commonwealth funding to support your Virginia-based research and commercialization? If so, then the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) wants to hear from you!
As many of you may know, during the 2011 General Assembly session, the Commonwealth of Virginia appropriated $6 million for the FY2012 Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund (CRCF). In order to gauge the level of interest in and understand the need for future state funding for Virginia-based research and commercialization, as well as assist in financing science and technology facilities used to commercialize research, CIT is issuing a Request for Information (RFI). The RFI is open to any individuals or groups from Virginia public and private institutions of higher education, the private sector, federal labs, other research institutes, and political subdivisions.
To learn more and to submit your RFI, please visit www.cit.org/programs/cit-rd/crcf/RFI. Individuals and organizations may submit multiple RFIs. If you have questions or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Responses are needed on or before Monday, August 1, 2011.
This RFI is independent of the FY2012 CRCF call for proposals. Program areas and qualified research and technologies for that solicitation will be defined in CRCF proposal guidelines and issued in early FY2012. More information on the CRCF can be found at www.cit.org/programs/cit-rd/crcf.
