SCRA: SCRA-ACADEMIA COLLABORATION TEAM (SACT)
SCRA is requesting applications from multi-institutional, collaborative teams that will provide measurable outcomes within the scope of this Funding Opportunity.
Proposals must advance commercially relevant research, develop state-wide research infrastructure, or acquire equipment that will be used by multiple RUs, Comprehensive Teaching Universities (CTUs), and Technical Colleges (TCs) (collectively Constituent Institutions) and be made available on a state-wide basis.
Proposals must establish how the funding aligns with the Research Topic(s) outlined in Table 1 and will lead to obtaining follow-on funding from sources such as industry and the federal government to continue development.
Priority will be given to applications that also engage one or more South Carolina-based industry partners to address key business challenges and opportunities.
For applications engaging with an industry partner, applicants must provide an accompanying Letter of Support verifying the unmet need or a Letter of Commitment if the industry partner is providing cost share. Cost share from an industry partner may be cash or in-kind contributions.
USC is limited to submitting two pre-applications to this competition.
