DCED is now soliciting proposals from faculty Principal Investigators (PI) for projects that fit within the PMFI mission and program guidelines. Proposals must include a collaboration with an industry partner.  Please note that companies may serve as project collaborators, but they may not receive state funding. Any company that would like to partner with a university on a project, but has not yet identified a faculty member, should complete an inquiry form. The information will be used to identify potential faculty collaborators for the company to consider.  

Detailed information about the project requirements, review criteria, proposal template, budget template, and award management is included in the proposal guidelines. The application period will close on November 19, 2019. Faculty may submit proposals by using the link below. The proposal form requires the submission of the Technical Proposal Template (template may be downloaded below) along with a proposed budget, budget justification, industry letter(s) of support and University statement of intent.
