Call for proposals: deadline 30 October 2017

Seed grant funding is used for smaller scale initiative projects and pilot programs that entail some risk and uncertainty necessary for innovation and growth. These projects may include a proof of concept in preparation for subsequent full-scale implementation. Funding is limited to grants that require US$40,000 or less and take 12 months or less to complete.

Seed grant proposals in response to this IEEE New Initiatives Committee call may be submitted by one or more IEEE members or organizational units[1], individually or in cooperation with an IEEE staff group. IEEE encourages coordination and efficient use of IEEE resources, and therefore, will look more favorably on proposals with multiple IEEE organizational unit (OU) sponsors than those with only a single or no OU sponsor.
The due date for proposals submitted in response to this call is no later than 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time on 30 October 2017.
