Increasing Industrial Research Contract Proposals
We are concerned with the low number of industrial research
contract proposals submitted by Purdue faculty. Even though
the 1994-1995 award dollars were up, the number of indus-
trial research contract proposals submitted by our research
professors only grew 1.2 percent to 437. The actual proposal
dollars were down 5.1 percent.

* Water quality issues will continue to be supported by programs in the Natural Resources and the Environment research
program area.

** Integrated pest management and pesticide impact assessment issues will continue to be supported by programs in the Pest
Biology, Biological Control, and Integrated Pest Management research program areas.

USDA will fund conventional projects that involve fundamental research or are mission-linked and conducted by individual
investigators or disciplinary or multidisciplinary teams and projects to hold conferences; agricultural enhancement awards,
including postdoctoral fellowships, new investigator awards and strengthening awards. The maximum project period is five
