RIO's 2022 NIH R01 Proposal Development Support

2022 NSF CAREER Commit-to-Submit Writing Program

RIO Webinars & Workshops


Fueled by the NSF Regional Innovation Engines opportunity, CU Boulder’s Research & Innovation Office is hosting a virtual showcase featuring several of Colorado’s regional innovation partners. Lightning pitches from innovation ecosystem partners will describe the resources and capabilities they can contribute to proposing teams. The session is intended to jumpstart regional conversations about team formation and potential collaborations.

Internal call for concept outlines
Given the NSF Engines program’s high-impact potential and complexity, the Research & Innovation Office (RIO) is institutionally coordinating the submission of concept outlines to NSF with an internal deadline of June 13. While NSF currently allows more than one concept outline to be submitted, ultimately, CU Boulder may submit only one lead proposal. As such, CU Boulder is administering an internal process with the goal of putting forward the most competitive and strategic proposal possible—either Type 1 or Type 2 later in the year. View full details on the internal call.

About the NSF Engines program
The NSF Regional Innovation Engines program is a new initiative of the new Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP) Directorate that will create regional-scale innovation ecosystems throughout the United States. With maximum funding at $160 million over 10 years, the Engines will be NSF’s largest centers to date. NSF hopes that these will transform innovation ecosystems in regions without strong existing ecosystems to:

  • Drive use-inspired research on critical emerging technologies and address societal and economic challenges;
  • Catalyze technology commercialization, new start-ups, capital influx and industry growth; and
  • Foster broad and diverse workforce development
  • Who: All CU Boulder Faculty & Staff interested in the NSF Regional Innovation Engines
  • When: Tuesday, June 7, 2022, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. MT
  • Where: Virtual via Zoom

The Research and Innovation Office (RIO) invites Faculty, Staff, postdocs, and students to learn to use Dimensions to identify potential funding opportunities using a description of a current proposal idea. Dimensions is an innovative grants and funder database that allows CU Boulder stakeholders to analyze and understand the funding landscape across the U.S. and around the globe. In this interactive workshop, Donna Axel of the Research & Innovation Office will provide one quick way to use Dimensions to achieve optimal results.

Please bring an abstract, paragraph or one-pager on the project for which you seek funding.

To access Dimensions, you will need to have your VPN activated and CU identikey credentials.

  • Who: All CU Boulder Faculty, Research Staff, Postdocs, and Graduate Students
  • When: Thursday, June 16, 2022, 10-10:30 a.m. MT
  • Where: Virtual via Zoom
