Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund: Fall 2011 call for proposals

The fall 2011 solicitation is NOW OPEN!

With $6 million appropriated by the General Assembly during the 2011 Session, the Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund (CRCF) seeks proposals that advance science- and technology-based research, development, and commercialization in Virginia and strengthen collaborative partnerships among the Commonwealth’s public and private colleges and universities, and between academia, business, and industry.

Technology sectors eligible for CRCF funding are identified in the recently released Commonwealth Research and Technology Strategic Roadmap, which establishes priorities for industry and research areas worthy of economic development and institutional focus.

APPLY NOW! Visit to learn more and submit your proposal. RFPs will be accepted October 4 – October 31, 2011, with award announcements planned for December 2011.
