Return on Investment

ICTS Funding Program:

The ICTS annually evaluates Return on Investment (ROI), based on information provided by funded researchers about: 1) external grant applications, 2) external awards, 3) publications, and 4) interesting discoveries and other successes directly resulting from their ICTS funded research project(s).  Awardees are encouraged to review the progress/final report templates on the "Awardee Information" page in order to anticipate reporting requirements.  As an example, ROI data about external grant applications by previous cohorts is included below.

External Grants Awarded
