DURHAM, NH-The New Hampshire Innovation Research Center (NHIRC) is seeking proposals for its Granite State Technology Innovation Grant, which supports research partnerships for New Hampshire companies with college and university laboratories. A nonbinding letter of intent on company letterhead is due Feb. 20.

The NHIRC' s Granite State Technology Innovation Grant leverages a state investment with federal dollars from the National Science Foundation's EPSCoR program (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research). The grants underwrite research projects in new technologies under development in the private sector. It is a competitive process, with oversight by representatives from industry, government and academic institutions.

The Request for Proposals, with topics of interest, is posted on the NHIRC website: The NHIRC and the New Hampshire EPSCoR program are administered by the Office for Research Partnerships and Commercialization at the University of New Hampshire.
