NC Agriculture and Life Sciences Research Foundation Innovation Fund Grant

The NC Agricultural and Life Sciences (NCALS) Research Foundation seeks to increase public and private support to enhance research programs and create new opportunities for CALS faculty, staff and students to innovate and pursue excellence in research. The NCALS Research Foundation seeks proposals for entrepreneurial research projects in new, high impact, interdisciplinary research areas in which a short term investment by the Foundation will have a high probability of leading to larger funding opportunities. Examples would include: testing a high risk/high reward idea, proof of concept to move preliminary results forward for a specific funding opportunity, and/or innovative, interdisciplinary projects following up on or moving toward invention disclosures.

The RFP can be viewed and proposals submitted through InfoReady Review, NC State’s internal grant management software.
