Currently, the OVPR CORES funding program is focused on supporting Foundational and Emerging Innovations Core Facilities. The last RFP process was completed in 2015.
- Foundational Cores are funded for a period of 4 years. There is no limit to the number of renewals assuming that the facility is successful and continues to meet the definition of a Foundational Core.
- Emerging Innovation Cores are funded for a period of 2 years with the possibility of renewal for a second 2 year term.
Core Facility infrastructure is sourced through a designated stream of our research F&A which will vary annual based on research expenditures. Therefore, an annual budget request process is required for all funded cores and funding levels may change annually based on available funds.
NEW – RFP for Emerging Innovations Core Facilities. Proposals Due May 1, 2017
