Request for Proposal is now open

May 23, 2024

I am pleased to announce the sixth Princeton Catalysis Initiative (PCI) request for proposal is open.  Using the same approach that we successfully used in previous years, the proposal submission will consist of a simple set of slides.  The first slide outlines the Investigators, the aims of the collaboration and a brief statement of why the aims are different from their current programs. Most importantly it asks the question “Does this proposal have the potential to open up an important new field of research?” A maximum of two supporting slides are included and are intended for schemes, figures or formulae.

The deadline for submission is 21 June 2024, review and decisions will be made mid-July and funding for successful proposals will be available from 01 July 2024.

I hope that you have already identified a new collaboration across campus. If you need to refresh on the 2024 Symposium the video will be on the website as soon as we can technically achieve that.   The video from the five previous symposia is at the website You will need to use CAS to login with your Princeton credentials to view the presentations.

If you intend to submit a proposal, please can you let me know indicating the name of your collaborator.   This will allow me to develop an appropriate plan for faculty to assist in evaluation of the research proposals.  This year proposals will be submitted to

If you have any question then please feel free to contact us.
