These grants are designed to add or augment research capacity through the acquisition of equipment for use by multiple investigators in shared facilities or approved university core facilities.
The proposed equipment should be located in an approved UArizona Core Facility or in a shared, accessible space and should have multiple committed users from at least two departments and preferably, from at least two different colleges. In extremely well justified cases, a single department request may be considered. Additionally, well justified infrastructure refreshes, e.g., replacement of critical components, to avoid loss of current capability, will also be accepted. Preference will be given to multi-department/multi-college equipment with a priority for equipment located in the RII Core Facilities.
The deadline for submission is September 27, 2023. More details on the TRIF-funded Equipment Enhancement Fund program.
