Great Lakes Regional Center of Excellence Recovery Act Supplement

The GLRCE is eligible to receive support from the recently signed American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). There are ARRA stimulus funds for RCE Biodefense available for exceptionaly innovative projects.

To qualify for support through the ARRA, projects must be exceptionally innovative. The research must demonstrate that it is of high risk but has the potential for high payoff if successful. It is expected that while these “out of the box” projects entail greater than the usual degree of scientific risk, they hold the potential for delivering transformational results or paradigm shifts. While the funding for these projects will terminate no more than two years after the award,it is expected that many of them will be able to continue with support from other sources.

For more information, please see the request for proposals or the GLRCE website.
