Submit proposals for Internet of Things Collaborative Pilot Grant

The Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS) at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University have partnered for the Internet of Things Collaborative (IOTC). The group is working to build a regional economy around IoT that is inclusive and equitable, actively connecting faculty across all related disciplines at both universities.

The IOTC intends to further this goal with the 2018 IoT Collaborative Pilot Grant. Collaborative leaders are seeking proposals for pilot research projects that leverage the complementary research strengths of CWRU and CSU. The focus will be on projects that foster collaborations among faculty across campuses and demonstrate strong potential to attract external funding that supports a long-term IoT research program.

Proposal teams may request up to $20,000 in funding (up to $10,000 per institution) to conduct pilot projects of up to 12 months in duration. A total of $100,000 in funding will be made available for fall 2018 pilot grants.

To help identify potential collaborators across the two campuses, faculty are encouraged to explain their interest in the grant in a Google Form.

Contact information will be shared with all faculty members who fill out the form. A faculty networking event will be held Monday, Sept. 10, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Health Tech Corridor offices (5000 Euclid Ave.).
