Planning Grant: I/UCRC for Arthropod Management Technologies

Grants and Contracts Details


Create a Center to develop technologies for controlling insects with support from NSF and industrial partners. This will be a collaborative effort between UK and Iowa State University.The objective of this proposal is to hold a planning meeting for the proposed new Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC), the Center for Arthropod Management Technologies (CAMTech). The goals of the planning meeting are to present a compelling case for the Center to prospective members and to determine the initial research agenda. The strategy will be for the lead institution, Iowa State University (ISU) to host a meeting September 5-7, 2012 with participants from organizations with vested interest in arthropod management, from government, and from ISU and the partner institution, University of Kentucky (UK). The purpose of the meeting is to (i) communicate the benefits and policies of membership in this multi-university I/UCRC, (ii) foster interaction between representatives from prospective member companies and the research team and university administrators, (iii) present potential research projects, (iv) solicit feedback from prospective members on presented research projects and learn of other areas of interest within the capabilities of the ISU/UK research team.
