Proposers Day

Industry and ASU researchers define research and development priorities to scale Arizona’s competitiveness in high-tech sectors.

About the event

The ASU Science and Technology Centers, known as STCs, catalyze research innovations and entrepreneurship in areas key to the future of Arizona’s economic development, positioning our state for global leadership in new economy industries. STCs bring together faculty and student researchers, industry professionals and entrepreneurs to take big ideas from the lab to market across key clusters of future technologies.

STCs are a component of the New Economy Initiative (NEI) and are responsible for leveraging ASU-industry partnerships to enable research innovation, entrepreneurship, and tech transfer in areas key to the future of Arizona’s economy

The purpose of ASU STC Proposers Day is to connect industry and ASU faculty to define research and development priorities and capabilities for joint projects in the STCs, and to improve Arizona’s competitiveness in high-tech sectors.

The input from the participants will be used to generate subsequent funding opportunity announcements, or FOAs, that will solicit joint research projects with ASU faculty and industry partners.
