Success Story GVSU, Spectrum and GR Current Partner for Innovation Grant From GVNow, January 15, 2014

An innovative technology sharing program created by Spectrum Health Innovations, Grand Valley State University and GR Current has been awarded a $187,000 grant from the Michigan Initiative for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (MIIE). The grant will be used to support Spectrum-Community T2, as the project is known, which aims to increase the success of biomedical commercialization opportunities in West Michigan’s growing life sciences corridor. “Each member organization and the community as a whole will benefit from this unique collaboration,” said J. Kevin McCurren, executive director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Seidman College of Business. “We foresee the commercialization of ideas, hands-on learning experiences, and ultimately, the creation of new companies and job opportunities arising from these efforts.” (continued on page 2)

(Continued from page 1) Grand Valley will provide technical expertise and access to a diverse knowledge base, including product design, prototyping and market assessment. Spectrum Health Innovations, a business venture within Spectrum Health, will bring opportunities and clinical knowledge and resources required to develop life science products, and GR Current will contribute a network and resources designed to incubate start-ups and accelerate business growth. The project calls for the creation of a Grand Valley student/faculty “Innovation Team” comprising an industrybased engineering graduate assistant, a full-time integrated MBA (FIMBA) student and an experienced entrepreneur-in-residence. The graduate students will work at Spectrum Health Innovations and the entrepreneur-inresidence will be an experienced start-up executive located at GR Current. “Spectrum-Community T2 provides a high-impact experience with the commercialization process for advanced engineering and MBA students,” said McCurren. “We expect the program to become a feeder system for commercialization talent for West Michigan.”

News National Science Foundation Takes Steps to Ensure Project Reports are Submitted on Time Adapted from Research Compliance, January 2014 The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Inspector General (OIG) has taken a more aggressive tone, promising to use every compliance and enforcement tool at its disposal when dealing with chronically late reports and cases of fraud. This includes expanded debarment to include principal investigators (PIs) who are not current with final reports. And, for the first time, OIG has recommended that NSF make use of its authority under the Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act (PFCRA) to recover “up to twice the amount of a false claim, as well as a penalty for each false claim.” These steps are in response to the increase in misconduct OIG has found in proposals submitted for funding. In their last report, OIG made 13 new misconduct findings. This is on top of the 11 they found in the previous reporting period. For more information about these changes, visit

Grants Resource Center News Modest Growth in Sponsored Programs/Research Budgets Possible From GrantWeek, January 6, 2014 The FY 14 federal budget deal brokered by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), and signed by President Obama on December 26, is seen by many in education as offering a measure of research funding stability. The budget will fund government programs through FY 15, limit the possibilities of a government shutdown, and offer a measure of relief from cuts under sequestration. A summary of the bill was released prior to passage. Under the new budget, spending ceilings will increase. Previously, the FY 14 spending limit for non-defense discretionary (NDD) spending was $469 billion. With the passage of the FY 14 budget, NDD limits were raised to approximately $492 billion in FY 14 and FY 15. Defense discretionary spending also grew from a previous cap of $498 billion to $520 billion in FY 14. While the passage of the budget is a positive sign, the renewal of the fight over the debt limit is likely to resurface in late February or early March, according to the Treasury Department. Action is needed to avert a U.S. default on its debt. The budget bill offered no details on the spending limits for federal agencies or programs. The staff of the Senate and House Appropriations Committees, working with the White House, now must come up with these more detailed budgets. This information is expected to be released sometime in January.

GRC Conference Highlight: Two Views on Violence From GrantWeek January 6, 2014 On February 20, 2014, two speakers will present their respective agency's violence prevention programs. First, Robert Freeman, a health scientist administrator from the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism will give an overview of NIH's new R01 program Research on the Health Determinants and Consequences of Violence and its Prevention, Particularly Firearm Violence. Then, Dara Blachman -Demner, a social science analyst from the U.S. Department of Justice's National Institute of Justice (NIJ), will discuss NIJ's wide-ranging violence prevention efforts, with particular focus on violence against women. BlachmanDemner and Freeman are planning to present an informative outline of the ways in which colleges and universities can get involved in these two agencies' efforts to curtail violence. Please see the conference website for more information.

Call for Proposals: EPA's Environmental Education Program From GrantWeek, January 13, 2014 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Environmental Education Grants Program is seeking proposals to support projects that promote environmental stewardship and help develop knowledgeable and responsible students, teachers and citizens. This grant program provides financial support for projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques, and that will serve as models that can be replicated in a variety of settings. Proposals are due February 4, 2014.

AHRQ Announces Interest in Research on Health Insurance and Healthcare Delivery From GrantWeek January 6, 2014 The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently announced that it intends to support research designed to facilitate improvements in access to healthcare, help moderate the growth in the cost of healthcare, and improve affordability. (continued on page 4) Attention will be given to determining the effects and impact of the Affordable Care Act coverage and healthcare delivery systems with specific interest on access to care, health safety, quality and outcomes, disparities, financial security, labor market effects, insurance offers and take-up, provider costs, and health spending. Applicants should consider these notices active until further notice. Applications can be submitted on regular AHRQ research grant receipt dates and will be reviewed by AHRQ's standing study sections. For more details, contact Amy Taylor (health insurance coverage) at 301/427-1660 or, or Michael Hagan (healthcare delivery system) at 301/427-1409 or
