SFI Research Infrastructure Award

SFI Research Infrastructure Award: Category D (Opportunistic Funding) – UCC Internal Call (Open)

 

The SFI Research Infrastructure Programme facilitates high quality, high impact and innovative research by building and sustaining the required national infrastructure capacity. 

 

UCC was recently successful in securing funding under Category D of this programme — this fund category seeks to enable the purchase of items of infrastructure/equipment where the financial terms are particularly advantageous (eg. industry facility decommissioning, via receivers or liquidators, through online auctions etc.). In short, the fund can be used to support the acquisition of equipment/infrastructure items, meeting a demonstrable infrastructural need, by taking advantage of cost-effectivevalue-for-money opportunities.

 

Allowable costs via this fund may also include:

  1. Maintenance or service contracts (for up to two years from the purchase date of the relevant item).
  2. Materials and consumables required to operate the infrastructure/equipment generally ie. not for a specific project (for up to two years from the purchase date of the relevant item).
  1. Relevant software.
  2. Training for key personnel to operate the purchased infrastructure/equipment.
  1. Purchase of replacement parts to fix existing infrastructure/equipment.
  2. Strength of the justification of need

 

UCC Research Support Services are now seeking applications from UCC’s science, technology, engineering & mathematics (STEM) research community to avail of this fund.

 

Approx. €1.2 million is currently available for this call —  as such, because of anticipated high demand, all applications will be expected to deliver a value saving of >50% on commercial rates.  Minimum request is €25K. There is also an expectation that awarded funds be committed, in as far as is possible, by the end of the year.

 

Applications will be ranked by an Evaluation Committee comprised of the following colleagues: Chairs of the Research Committees of the Colleges of Medicine and Health and Science, Engineering and Food Science; Chair of the UCC Academic Council Research and Innovation Committee; Dean of Graduate Studies; a representative from the UCC Research Centres and Institutes; Directors of Research Support Services and Technology Transfer; and the Vice President for Research and Innovation

 

Selection/Ranking Criteria:

  1. Proposed use of infrastructure by the named investigators
  2. Intra- and inter- institutional usage and access
  1. Alignment to National Research Priorities
  2. Contribution to the overall R&I strategy of UCC

 

It is important to note that this overall process will be highly audited, and all purchases must follow all relevant institutional and National and EU Procurement Guidelines.

 

If you currently have, or can identify, a value-for-money opportunity that meets the above criteria, please complete the application form (attached) and return to SFI-Infrastructure@ucc.ie

 

Deadline for receipt of applications: 11th September 2017
