Synopsis of the Program

The Manufacturing Grants are designed to encourage collaboration between not-for-profit organizations in New York State and companies that work within the manufacturing industry. The grants serve as a resource to help small to medium-size manufacturing and technology companies achieve success from early stage, proof of concept through maturity. The partnership created by the not-for-profit organization and the industry partner serves as a pathway to technology transfer, adoption and implementation of new manufacturing processes, as well as the creation of enhanced products and services.

Eligibility

New York State not-for-profit organizations that partner with a New York State small to medium-sized manufacturer. Up to three different centers or departments at a given university may apply. University applicants must provide the subset of the university such as college, school or department in the application form.

Call for Intent to Submit Limited Submission Process

For this Limited Submission Opportunity (LSO) we are issuing a call for intent to submit to gauge faculty interest in a particular funding opportunity. At this stage, only submission of a form and abstract is required to express interest in the opportunity. If there is more interest than the number of submissions allowed by the sponsor (e.g., four faculty have expressed interest in applying to this opportunity where the sponsor only allows two proposals from the University), we will announce an internal competition for pre-proposals.

If no applications are received by a call for intent to submit deadline, the LSO will become “first come, first served.” At this stage, eligible applicants may express interest in the opportunity any time before the sponsor deadline.

PI Responsibilities

If a proposal is selected and the PI or team decides to forgo an application, they must notify the Office of Research within five days of the selection notice. This allows another proposal to be selected and move forward. If the PI fails to submit a proposal and has not notified the Office of Research, the PI runs the risk of being disqualified from future LSO competitions.

PI Eligibility

For any sponsored research projects, the applicant must be eligible to serve as Principal Investigator for the project, unless otherwise noted in the LSO. Please see our PI Eligibility requirements to ensure you are eligible.
