How to Submit a Research Proposal or Idea 

Research ideas or suggestions, written or verbal, may be submitted anytime by SMRI members or non-members, to Research Coordinator Dr. Leo Van Sambeek ( or any Research Committee member. 

Research proposals in response to RFPs must comply with the details and deadline in the RFPs, which will be posted online and e-mailed to individuals in our database.

Unsolicited research proposals must comply with SMRI’s Policy on Unsolicited Proposals.

It is suggested that proposals tell us whether the proposal may be shared publically, or shared with our membership,  or must remain inside the SMRI research and leadership groups.
