Unsolicited Research Proposals
Cisco encourages research across a broad range of areas, and invites research proposals on topics of your choice.
If there are no published Cisco Research RFPs that match your current research interest, please use this RFP to submit your proposal.
Constraints and other information:
IPR will remain with the University. Cisco expects customary scholarly dissemination of results, and hopes that promising results would be made available to the community without limiting licenses, royalties, or other encumbrances.
Please use the link below to submit a proposal for research responding to this RFP. After a preliminary review, we may ask you to revise and resubmit your proposal.
Note: Researchers should plan to submit their proposals as soon as possible. Submissions are batched and reviewed at the beginning of each calendar quarter (January, April, July, and October)
