CALL FOR PROPOSALS: BERN Faculty Research Grants 2017-18

We are pleased to announce the 2017 call for proposals for the Bosch Energy Research Network (BERN) faculty research grants.  BERN invites faculty from University of California at Berkeley, Caltech, University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University and MIT to apply for grants for research on transformative energy technology, for up to $150,000 per year for two years, beginning January 2017.

The grant program focuses on transformative energy technology including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Energy conversion, e.g. fuel cells, e-fuels, novel automotive powertrains, advanced combustion concepts
  • Energy storage for transportation and stationary applications, e.g., lithium ion, magnesium, solid state and flow batteries 
  • Energy usage efficiency, e.g., smartgrids, cooling systems 

For the first round of competition we invite white papers, due September 9, 2016.  For full details about the grant program, please visit the Grant Program tab at www.BERNprogram.com.
