Welcome to ARB’s Research Planning Idea and Proposal Submission Website!


The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) is soliciting draft research proposals from California public universities and colleges to implement the development of the Fiscal Year 2015-16 Annual Research Plan.


If you are interested in submitting a draft proposal to address any of the research topics described in this cycle's solicitation, please send an email to Annalisa Schilla () indicating your intent to submit by January 30, 2015.  Draft proposals will then be due no later than February 27, 2015.


Read about the process and the requested proposals on the Proposals Overview webpage.


We accept research ideas year round, but will set a deadline for ideas to be considered for ARB’s 2016-2017 Research Plan. The deadline for ARB's 2015-2016 Research Plan was midnight on May 31, 2014. Ideas submitted after the deadline will be reviewed for future research planning.
