AgTech Innovation Hub Request for Proposals Now Available

For the second year, the AgTech Innovation Hub is putting out a request for proposals from CFAES-led research teams. The Hub is a partnership between Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, Ohio Farm Bureau, and the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences aimed at supporting research and innovation activity focused on developing new solutions to help the agriculture ecosystem understand, manage, and mitigate climate risk. 

We are pleased to provide the linked request for proposals with a due date of February 2, 2024 for letters of intent. Please read the RFP carefully and be aware that there is interest in a wide range of projects including the social sciences, economics, and policy. 

This is a unique opportunity in that projects will be of short duration (1 year initially), well-funded (up to $150,000), have an accelerated timeline (anticipated June 1, 2024 start date [at the latest]), and a low likelihood that requests for no-cost extensions would be approved. These parameters will strongly influence the type of projects that can be proposed and that is intentional.
