BERN invites faculty at University of Michigan to apply for grants for research on transformative energy technology, for up to $150,000 per year for two years. BERN grants are open to faculty from a select group of universities, and we are delighted to include University of Michigan in that invited pool once again. You may recall that multiple Michigan projects have been selected from in our previous competitions.
Applications are invited with focus on transformative energy technology including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Energy conversion, e.g., solar, wind, combustion, thermo-electric 
  • Energy storage for transportation and electric utilities, e.g., lithium ion batteries, metal air batteries, flow batteries 
  • Energy usage efficiency, e.g., microgrids, cooling systems 

The grant program is managed by the Bosch Research and Technology Center (RTC), North America. With a staff of approximately 80, RTC is headquartered in Palo Alto, CA, with offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Cambridge, MA. The center covers a wide spectrum of research topics ranging from user interaction, software, advanced circuits and wireless systems, to energy technologies. In the energy field in particular, RTC has experts in battery materials and cells, solar cells, combustion technologies, thermal technologies, and other areas. Throughout its ten years of existence, RTC has fostered many strong collaborations with top U.S. universities and its researchers are active members of the global scientific community grant program.
For the first round of competition we invite white papers, due January 12, 2015.  For full details about the grant program, please visit the Grant Program tab at www.BERNprogram.com.
