Proposals submitted to CRCF undergo a multi-stage review process. The process includes assessment by subject matter experts (SMEs), followed by evaluation and award recommendations made by the Research and Technology Investment Advisory Committee (RTIAC) to the CIT Board of Directors. The review process culminates with award decisions made by the Board. CRCF awards contribute to the Commonwealth’s overall plan to enhance economic development through technology research and commercialization and, as such, CRCF awards must further the goals set forth in the Commonwealth Research and Technology Strategic Roadmap. In addition to identifying research areas worthy of economic development and institutional focus, the Roadmap provides a framework for aligning key industry sectors within the state.
Since its inception in FY2012, CRCF has announced more than 300 awards totaling more than $25 million. View the growing list of recipients, including our FY2018 awardees.
CRCF Annual Reports are available on Virginia’s Legislative Information System (LIS)’s website. View the FY2018 CRCF Annual Report.
