The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) at ACL has a new funding opportunity for a Rehabilitation Engineering Research Centers (RERC) Program: RERC on Blindness and Low Vision.

Rehabilitation Engineering Research Centers (RERC) Program

The purpose of the RERC program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act by conducting advanced engineering research on and development of innovative technologies that are designed to solve particular rehabilitation problems or to remove environmental barriers. RERCs also demonstrate and evaluate such technologies, facilitate service delivery system changes, stimulate the production and distribution of new technologies and equipment in the private sector, and provide training opportunities.

RERC on Blindness and Low Vision: This particular opportunity is for an RERC to conduct research and development activities toward technologies that will promote independence and community living among people who are blind or who have low vision.
