Ohio State/Honda Innovation Laboratory Seed Grants×

Funder: Ohio State Office of Research

Proposal deadline: March 4, 2019, at 5 p.m.

As part of Ohio State’s partnership with Honda, the Office of Research is offering seed grants to promote collaborative innovation in the broad areas of smart mobility and smart city/campus.

The 2019 Ohio State/Honda Innovation Laboratory Seed Grant Program strives to stimulate innovation in Honda’s newly opened 99P Lab at 1255 Kinnear Road. The 99P Lab is a collaborative innovation space for Honda and Ohio State to develop technologies for the future of mobility and accelerate them into Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) by prototyping and testing new value hypotheses with real world data.

To promote interdisciplinary research with a potential for marketable and scalable innovations, the Office of Research is offering $25,000 in startup funds to be used towards the exploration of new and innovative opportunities that could lead to significant products and services to advance societal needs in the areas of smart mobility and smart city/campus. Up to eight awards will be made.

Expeditions in Computing×

Funder: NSF

Program guidelines: NSF 18-528

Full proposal window: April 24, 2019 – April 23, 2020

The Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) has established the Expeditions in Computing program to provide the CISE research and education community with the opportunity to pursue ambitious, fundamental research agendas that promise to define the future of computing and information. Funded at levels up to $2M per year for five years, Expeditions projects represent some of the largest single investments currently made by the CISE directorate.

In planning Expeditions projects, investigators are encouraged to come together within or across departments or institutions to combine their creative talents in the identification of compelling, transformative research agendas that promise disruptive innovations in computer and information science and engineering for many years to come.

Additionally, CISE offers Innovation Transition (InTrans) awards for teams nearing the end of their Expeditions as well as Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Frontier projects.


Smart and Autonomous Systems×

Funder: National Science Foundation

Funding opportunity number: 18-557

Proposal deadlines: June 3, 2019; June 1, 2020

The Smart and Autonomous Systems program focuses on Intelligent Physical Systems (IPS) that are capable of robust, long-term autonomy requiring minimal or no human operator intervention in the face of uncertain, unanticipated, and dynamically changing situations. IPS are systems that combine perception, cognition, communication, and actuation to operate in the physical world. Examples include, but are not limited to, robotic platforms, self-driving vehicles, underwater exploration vehicles, and smart grids. More
