NCSRR’s pilot projects program is designed to encourage new collaborations and innovative ideas for utilizing simulations within medical rehabilitation. Projects should have a strong scientific component and demonstrate a clear alignment with the NCSRR’s mission.

Pilot project awardees may receive funding up to $25,000 for their research. In addition, the program launches awardees into leadership roles within the NCSRR network.
