IIT’s Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research (WISER) has issued a Request for Proposals for the 2013 Interdisciplinary Seed Funding Grants (ISFG) program. The ISFG program is designed to support and enhance new and innovative multidisciplinary research concepts that are expected to attract major external funding in areas of national interest related to energy and sustainability. According to WISER Director Hamid Arastoopour, “The WISER ISFG program provides IIT faculty with both the opportunity to develop interdisciplinary research initiatives and to obtain proof of their innovative proposal concepts, which will enable them to develop more nationally competitive proposals.” Proposals must be submitted electronically by March 1, 2013, to the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs in conformance with the 2013 ISFG Proposal Submission Guidelines.
