Concept paper due 9 Nov | Trailblazer Engineering Impact Award – I want to highlight this opportunity strongly as faculty in our college are the only ones at CU Denver that can apply.
**Prospective PIs interested in submitting TRAILBLAZER proposal must contact the Office of Emerging Frontiers and Multidisciplinary Activities (EFMA) via the Program Suitability and Proposal Concept Tool (ProSPCT) webform at https://suitability.nsf.gov/s/ by November 9th, 2023.**.
This opportunity is open for tenured or tenure-track Associate Professors or Professors with an appointment in an engineering college and/or who have earned an engineering doctorate degree.
The TRAILBLAZER program supports individual engineering researchers to undertake projects that have the potential to address new areas of fundamental research related to grand challenges and/or national needs, advance US global leadership, and/or catalyze the convergence of engineering and science domains. The principal investigator must have a track record of success and impact in an area of engineering research. The proposed projects should focus on bold, innovative, and potentially risky approaches to address problems that may seem intractable. The proposed research must hold potential for transformative outcomes, address a national need or grand challenge, and offer a clear leadership role for Engineering.
