In support of the university's Beyond Boundaries vision and strategic priorities, the Office of the Vice President for the National Capital Region annually solicits proposals from Virginia Tech faculty and researchers to support a limited number of meetings and events to be hosted at the Virginia Tech Research Center — Arlington (VTRC-A) that contribute to the long-range goals of the university, foster innovation, and enhance collaboration with external partners.
The VTRC-A's Executive Briefing Center is a distinctive facility with state-of-the-art technology and meeting rooms that can accommodate a variety of meeting formats with HD videoconferencing, immersive visualization, and multimedia presentations.
Proposals may be submitted at any time, but meetings must be scheduled to ensure that all funds are expended within the current fiscal year. Meetings that enhance the visibility of Virginia Tech in the National Capital Region, focus on transdisciplinary Destination Areas/Strategic Growth Areas, and enhance innovation and collaboration, are of particular interest.
Please review the current Call for Proposals for more information about the funding program and details for submitting a proposal.
