SPARC Collision Incubator

Department of Energy ARPA-E OPEN 2021

You are invited to an online Collision hosted by the Strategic Partnerships and Research Collaborative (SPARC). This gathering will provide an overview of The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) from the U.S. Department of Energy. The ARPA-E funds high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment. ARPA-E strives to support projects that have the potential to radically improve U.S. economic prosperity, national security, and environmental wellbeing.

OPEN 2021 solicits proposals that address the potential transformational impact of the proposed technology on the agency’s Mission Areas: reducing imported energy, reducing energy-related emissions, and improving energy efficiency. Concepts may span multiple disciplinary boundaries.

ARPA-E expects to make approximately $100 million available for new awards under this FOA, and individual awards may vary between $250,000 and $10 million in Federal share. Concept papers are due April 6, 2021.

Please join SPARC at this Collision Incubator to learn more about this opportunity and explore potential partnerships.
