In the interest of inclusiveness in government development initiatives, all proponents for 2018 Cycle 6 R&D projects for PCARI funding are required to involve other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), public and private, particularly those that are not PCARI project research partners. Involvement begins with the preparation of the collaborative proposals and eventually progresses to the implementation of approved projects. The objective is to broaden the base of HEI participation in the PCARI Project.
Other HEIs involvement may be in any or combination of the following forms of engagement:
- Collaborating partner
- Co-Project Leader
- Visiting Researcher
- PRIME mentor partner/observer (except those in the attached list of HEIs already involved in the PRIME project)
The forms of engagement should be expressly mentioned in the “Narrative Proposal” and reflected in the pertinent project forms for submission.
Proponents are reminded that all project proposals shall be submitted by 31 March 2018.
