ARPA-E Announces Funding Opportunity to Support Entrepreneurial Energy Discoveries within Small Busi
ARPA-E recently added a new topic to the “Solicitation on Topics Informing New Program Areas,” a funding opportunity that enables ARPA-E to investigate potential new program areas. The objective of this new topic, "Supporting Entrepreneurial Energy Discoveries (SEED)," is to identify and support disruptive concepts in energy-related technologies within small businesses, including collaborations with universities and national labs. Projects funded through SEED should have the potential for large-scale impact. Awards may support exploratory research to establish viability, proof-of-concept demonstration for a new technology, and/or modeling and simulation efforts to guide development of new energy technologies. Full applications are due at 9:30 AM ET on October 8, 2019.
