2014 I-CARES Call for Proposals

As part of its mission, I-CARES will award up to $500,000 this year in seed funding for innovative research projects to tenured and tenure-track faculty at Washington University. Disciplinary diversity and representation from various schools will be considered when final decisions are made, since the goal of I-CARES is to broaden participation in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainability. In 2014 we intend to fund at least one project focusing on Climate Change and Human Health.

Message from the Chancellor and Director


The key objective of I-CARES is to foster research on energy, environment, and sustainability that cannot be done by single investigators alone. I-CARES nurtures collaboration within Washington University and with regional and international partners and will contribute to more rapid progress in addressing great challenges facing our world.
Mark S. Wrighton, Chancellor
Washington University in St. Louis



I-CARES, as an umbrella organization, coordinates all research activities in the areas of energy, environment, and sustainability. In collaboration with regional and international partners, I-CARES investigators are engaged in cutting-edge research and the development of various forms of renewable energy.
