RFP-Based Research Proposal

Overview

Cisco Research Center publishes Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to assist researchers in identifying Cisco's area's of research interest. Cisco Requests for Proposals (RFPs) connect Cisco engineers to researchers and educators to facilitate collaboration and research opportunities. RFPs give researchers a way to identify and submit proposals on pressing issues, topics, and problems in networking research. Cisco provides support in the form of gifts, contracts, and gifts-in-kind; the exact form of support depends on the project. Awards are made to institutions, not to individual persons.
