Research and Innovation Seed Funding

NC State’s Office of Research, Innovation and Economic Development (ORIED) and the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science (KIETS) established the Strategic Research Initiative in 2010, which is now entitled Research and Innovation Seed Funding (RISF). This program is designed to assist NC State researchers in developing innovative interdisciplinary programs that have strong potential for significant future support from government agencies, corporations, industrial consortia, or foundations.
