Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) 15/16 System wide Call for Proposals

CSU Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) funding is available for the 2015/16 fiscal year to all qualified campus faculty and research staff on a competitive basis. The ARI provides public funds that require at least one-to-one match with industry/agency resources to fund high impact applied agricultural research, development, and technology transfer.


All proposals must address improving the economic efficiency, productivity, profitability and sustainability of California agriculture and its allied industries. System proposals are for projects that address issues that have statewide significance and require collaborative research. 


System proposals require submission of pre-proposals, which must be submitted through the ARI web-based Proposal Submission Routing System (PSRS) no later than August 13, 2014.  Please contact Karen Hansen, RESP ARI Analyst by August 1, 2014 if you plan to submit. The Call for Proposals and access to PSRS and interactive forms are available on the ARI Calstate site.
