Annual Request for Concrete Research Proposals Now Open

The ACI Foundation's Concrete Research Council (CRC) annual request for proposals is open now through December 1, 2023.

  • Topics are encouraged from all areas of concrete research.
  • Up to $50,000 for direct costs may be approved per project.
  • An ACI Technical Committee must support the research concept and participate in an advisory role to the principal investigator.
  • Researchers must contact the ACI Technical Committee chairs by September 1, 2023, to request endorsement.
  • An individual researcher can serve as the principal or co-principal investigator on only one submitted proposal.
  • Industry partnering and project cost sharing are strongly encouraged.
  • All proposals must be submitted before the December 1, 2023, deadline.

Principal investigators shall follow the requirements in the published RFP Application Guide.
