The American Concrete Institute Foundation’s Concrete Research Council has opened its annual request for research project proposals, the organization announced last week.

The CRC says it “seeks to advance the concrete industry through the funding of concrete research projects that further the knowledge and sustainability of concrete materials, construction and structures.”

Topics from all areas of concrete research are encouraged, and four projects will be selected in this cycle. Up to $50,000 may be approved per project for direct costs, with a possible additional $7,500 to fund indirect costs, CRC notes.

Other parameters include:

  • An ACI technical committee must support the research concept and participate in an advisory role to the principal investigator. Each committee that supports the research shall fill out the new ACI Committee Support Form and the chair of that committee must sign the form;
  • An individual researcher can serve as the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on only one proposal submitted;
  • Industry partnering and project cost sharing are strongly encouraged; and
  • Principal investigators shall follow the published RFP Application Guide.

Proposals are due Dec. 1.

For additional research information, contact Ann Daugherty, Director, ACI Foundation, at ann.daugherty@acifoundation.org. More information on the last year’s awarded projects and research products is available at www.acifoundation.org/research.
