The Philippine-California Advanced Research Institutes (PCARI) is a project of the Philippine government Commission on Higher Education (CHED), in collaboration with California-based and leading Philippine academic institutions, to establish a platform for capacity-building of Philippine Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) by way of collaborative research. In support of this goal, two parallel PCARI institutes have been established:1) the Institute for Information Infrastructure Development (IIID), and 2) the Institute for Health Innovation and Translational Medicine (IHITM).
We are pleased to announce a new cycle of Request for Proposals (RFPs) for CHED-PCARI funding. Projects to be funded under this announcement are expected to be either in the priority areas of information infrastructure development and health innovation and translational medicine to be undertaken jointly by collaborating eligible HEIs. Proposals must address a significant societal problem and have the potential to bring about and sustain technology transfer or commercialization activities. For this cycle, preference will be given to project proposals in Agriculture in the priority areas stated above.
A pre-condition for the approval of the proposals is for these to be undertaken in collaboration with a university in California, USA, such as the University of California Berkeley (UCB), the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and the University of California Davis (UC Davis).
Submissions must be received electronically by the PCARI Secretariat at proposals.pcariproject@
