R2I CCI: Chemical Centers of Innovation
|The National Science Foundation’s program, Centers for Chemical Innovation or "CCI", supports research centers focused on major, long-term fundamental chemical research challenges aimed at producing transformative research, lead to innovation, and attract broad scientific and public interest. CCIs may partner with researchers from industry, government laboratories and international organizations and must integrate research, innovation, education, and public outreach and include a plan to broaden participation of underrepresented groups.
The CCI program is a two-phase program. Phase 1 grants are $1.5M for three years with the opportunity to apply for a Phase 2 grant for $20M over 4 years.
Research to Innovation at CCI
The goal of the R2I program is to ensure that Phase 1 CCI Center researchers have the skills to effectively translate their research into innovations and to develop and execute an aligned R2I translation plan. Both the innovation ideas and the translation plan can act as part of the preparation for a CCI Phase 2 submittal.
The workshops provide CCI participants—faculty, post docs, students and their support ecosystem—with the skills to:
This program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, Chemistry Division into the National Collegiate Inventors & Innovators Alliance.
