The Implementation Grant supports PL's external academic collaborators in hiring short-term engineering consultants and contractors to develop and deploy critical software necessary to conduct PL-aligned research. This grant is intended to support existing collaborations, but we will consider using this funding opportunity to initiate a brand new collaboration in an area of interest.
The Protocol Labs Implementation Grant consists of a grant in $10,000 increments up to $50,000 to support contracting for temporary (<12 month contract duration) engineering support.
