Research Equipment

Who Should Apply: Tenure-system faculty active in acquiring external research funding

Deadline: Oct. 16, 2023

Contact for Inquiries: Andrew Moiseff, associate dean for research and graduate affairs

CLAS recognizes the critical role of research infrastructure in supporting cutting-edge research and the challenges researchers face in upgrading and staying abreast of these technologies.

Here, we initiate a call for proposals for equipment that will advance research within CLAS in significant ways. Options include acquiring equipment that currently does not exist at UConn, replacing a critical piece of equipment that has become outdated and/or dysfunctional, or a significant upgrade to existing equipment.

We are particularly interested in supporting requests that will benefit multiple researchers and will add to our competitiveness for external funding.

Proposals should be submitted by Oct. 16, 2023 through the CLAS proposal submission portal.

Please submit a document of no more than three pages that outlines the following:

  1. Researchers who plan to use the equipment and potential for increased future use.
  2. Benefit to advancing collaborative research in the context of the CLAS Strategic Plan.
  3. Management plan for the equipment that includes its location, long-term maintenance, and supervision. For equipment that will require a service contract or other anticipated operating costs, estimate the cost(s) and describe how revenue will be generated to meet the expense(s).
  4. If the PI and/or co-PIs have received funding from any CLAS program within the past five years, describe the outcome(s) and the impact achieved from the funding. This supplemental information is not counted toward the three-page limit.
