The mission of the Foundation's Unsolicited Research Program is to promote applied research through projects proposed by researchers. Unsolicited research projects typically address emerging issues and involve original concepts, novel techniques, and other scientific research needs. Consistent with the Foundation's other research programs, the Unsolicited Research Program is designed to meet the future needs of the water reuse and desalination community by encouraging innovative and creative research solutions to priority issues.
Projects proposed under the Foundation's Unsolicited Research Program should address topics related to water reuse and desalination that may not be addressed by other Foundation research programs. These projects are intended to have long-term benefits to the water reuse and desalination community.
