OpenSim/NCSRR Pilot Project Program Call for Proposals
By Joy Ku
The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) and OpenSim project at Stanford seek proposals for our pilot project program. The program awards seed grants to innovative and meritorious projects that will accelerate the use of simulation in rehabilitation research. Our intent is to engage rehabilitation research experts to demonstrate the use of biomechanical simulations in novel areas and to help enhance the OpenSim software for rehabilitation science.
Pilot project awardees may request funding (up to $25,000) for their research. In addition, the program launches awardees into leadership roles within the NCSRR network. Projects should have a strong scientific component and demonstrate a clear alignment with the NCSRR’s mission.
Research proposals (up to 3 pages) should provide a scientific description of the project to be performed and convey the impact on rehabilitation and the biomechanical simulation community. Applications must also include a description of funding and other support requested. Deadline: August 30, 2013. More information and the application packet can be found at the following website: http://opensim.stanford.edu/support/pilot.html
