Rehabilitation Engineering Research Centers (RERC) Program on Wireless Technologies

The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) at ACL has opened a new funding opportunity for a Rehabilitation Engineering Research Centers (RERC) Program on Wireless Technologies and a Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers (RRTCs) on Interventions to Promote Community Living Among People with Disabilities.
 
The purpose of the RERC program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act by conducting advanced engineering research on and development of innovative technologies that are designed to solve particular rehabilitation problems or to remove environmental barriers. RERCs also demonstrate and evaluate such technologies, facilitate service delivery system changes, stimulate the production and distribution of new technologies and equipment in the private sector, and provide training opportunities.
 
RERC on Wireless Technologies: This particular opportunity is for an RERC to conduct research and development activities to improve the ability of individuals with sensory, mobility, cognitive, or other disabilities to obtain, independently access and use wireless technologies in their schools, communities, workplaces, or for emergency response.
 
This grant opportunity closes on April 26, 2021.
