The RIC-2D Research and Innovation Fund (the Fund) is designed to foster research, development, demonstration and deployment of novel technologies derived from graphene and other 2D materials, particularly targeting key topics of importance to Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The Fund is managed by Khalifa University through an open, worldwide, 2-stage call for proposals with a view to fund projects that demonstrate the most potential for near and long-term technology commercialization opportunities in the region and globally.

The Fund is open to the global research and innovation community. Applications can be submitted by domestic (UAE) or foreign, public or private, non-profit or for-profit organizations, universities and other relevant entities. Preference will be given to proposals with a strong plan for collaboration with Khalifa University and/or regional capacity building, particularly in Abu Dhabi.

Awards will be made for a duration of up to 36 months, with a maximum annual value of US$ 2 million.
