An ACI Technical Committee must support the research concept and participate in an advisory role to the principal investigator,
An individual researcher can serve as the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on only one submitted proposal,
Industry partnering, and project cost sharing are strongly encouraged,
All proposals must be submitted before the 1 December deadline, and
Principal investigators shall follow the requirements in the published RFP Application Guide, including the requirement to contact ACI Technical Committee Chairs by September 17, 2020, to request endorsement of your proposed research.
