PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Science and Technology Advisory Council is accepting proposals to fund research projects for up to $200,000 through the Rhode Island Research Alliance Collaborative Grants Program.
“Entrepreneurs and small businesses with ideas of innovative technologies are encouraged to apply,” the organizations announced, adding that projects must be “catalytic in nature” and must lead to major new research opportunities that can be supported by federal agencies, corporations or foundations.
They should also contribute towards current or future economic development of the state through technology development or commercialization potential.
Preliminary proposals were due by Sept. 30 and full proposals on Oct. 28; guidelines can be found at www.stac.ri.gov. •
