Request for proposals
Budget template/sample (download)
Proposals will be double-blind peer reviewed by domain experts from other 4-year universities and scored based on scientific merit, capacity building, and strategic excellence. We will be looking for proposals that fulfill the following three key goals:
- Relate to modeling and simulation, big data, machine learning, and/or analytics
- Will result in high-impact, peer-reviewed publications
- Can “seed” larger, long-term extramural funding
There are eight priority areas for funding, aligned with the research areas of the SimCenter: Advanced Modeling & Simulation, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Cybersecurity & Cyber-physical Systems, Digital Twins, Environment, Extreme Environment Technologies, Health & Biological Systems, and High-Performance Computing & Algorithms. Projects outside these areas are eligible for funding, provided they are oriented toward the key goals listed above. Proposals that leverage community assets/partners are strongly encouraged.
UTC professors at all tenured and tenure-earning ranks may apply as PIs and co-PIs. Non-tenure-track faculty, staff, and postdoctoral associates may apply as co-PIs. The maximum individual award amount is $100,000. Voluntary cost share is allowed but not required, and proposals with cost share will not be evaluated more favorably than others. The start date for all projects will be July 1, 2022. The budget period will be 12 months (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023).
