New ASHRAE Research Program Grant Fosters Development of HVAC&R Technology

 
HVAC-Research

A new research grant from ASHRAE will provide funding for research to significantly advance High-tech HVAC&R.

The ASHRAE Innovative Research Grant is designed to encourage unique research to complement the research proposed and guided by the Society’s technical committees.  The award carries a base grant of $50,000 per year for two years, with an additional $25,000 available in the third year if matched by an industrial contributor. 

“ASHRAE wants to foster the development of new and innovative technology and/or analysis tools,” says James Braun, Ph.D., P.E., recent chair of ASHRAE’s Research Administration Committee that oversees the grant.

Most of the current HVAC&R research is focused on existing technology and tools instead of building on those existing approaches.  Braun hopes to change this.

“Our hope with this grant is to encourage out-of-the box research that will result in successful projects, which lead to additional research and development down the road and ultimately to adoption of new technologies and tools that can make an impact within the field,” he says.

The program criteria are based on novelty of the research; importance of the problem; potential for success; student involvement; and cost sharing. Pre-proposals are due Sept. 1 and should be submitted to Michael Vaughn, ASHRAE’s manager of research and technical services, at mvaughn@ashrae.org, and should include “ASHRAE Innovative Research Grant Submission” as the subject line in the message.
