Latest on BP GRI Funding

Several of us listened to the EPA webinar from FAMU yesterday on the BP GRI funding ($500M over 10 years). I also had a phone conference following the webinar with the VC/VPs for Research from several of the other Louisiana research universities. The bottom line from the webinar is that the RFP is not out yet, individual proposals will be accepted BUT consortial proposals will have a much better chance, proposals probably will be due in February, 2011 and the money available June 1, 2011. The VC/VPs for Research have already been working on a consortial proposal. We are awaiting the RFP to help guide further development of the proposal.
