Effective May 13, 2022, IACMI is accepting proposals to fund precompetitive technical projects up to $50,000 that advance, utilize, or demonstrate emerging technologies that have the potential to attract higher levels of follow-on funding. Deadline to submit RFPs is May 27, 2022.
Only proposals submitted by active IACMI member(s) or an IACMI Working Group are eligible.
The projects will be funded by an IACMI Consortium Resource Pool, which represents a portion of membership fees set aside annually for the purpose of addressing specific opportunities that have direct or indirect benefit to a broad portion of the IACMI membership.
Proposers are encouraged to provide both cash and in-kind funding to increase the scope of work that can be performed. Once approved, projects funds committed to the project are set aside and not available for other purposes until the project is completed.
Projects that have Industry cost share to supplement the IACMI resource pool funding will be favored over otherwise similar projects that only meet minimum cost share requirements.
