MESSAGE FROM CWRU OFFICE OF GOVERNMENT & COMMUNITY RELATIONS –FY2009 Third Frontier Program
FY2009 Third Frontier program funding announcements (RFPs) are expected to begin being issued in late July or early August. In our effort to improve internal coordination and identification of project proposals that support and complement the University R&D strengths and match Third Frontier goals and outcomes, to be more proactive in interactions with the Ohio Department of Development prior to the RFP releases, and with Eric Cottington's position not yet filled, we are testing a new approach to the University process this year.
Jim Pae in the Office of Research and Tech Management has agreed to serve as the point person for Third Frontier proposals until Eric's successor is on board. We are providing a summary of funding opportunities for FY2009 with brief descriptions of the purpose & outcomes of each program, total funding available for the programs, and expected timelines for each program RFP. Our experience has been that occasionally these time-lines can be delayed, but generally, the delay is no longer than 2 weeks. Consider the dates 95 percent firm.
Note that there will NOT be a call for Wright Centers of Innovation or Ohio Research Scholars in FY2009.
We are requesting that faculty who are interested in pursuing these funding opportunities provide general information about their proposal ideas to Jim Pae by July 2. They do not need to be elaborate and should include the following: Faculty member name and contact information; Name of Third Frontier program (for example, Biomedical Research and Commercialization Program); Title or concept for proposal; and Brief description of proposal (max. one paragraph ). Please submit all materials to Jim Pae firstname.lastname@example.org by July 2.
