The National Science Foundation has two open EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) program solicitations:
Track 2 – Focused EPSCoR Collaborations
RII Track-2 builds interjurisdictional collaborative teams of EPSCoR investigators in scientific focus areas consistent with NSF priorities. Projects are investigator-driven and must include researchers from at least two RII-eligible jurisdictions. The development of diverse early-career faculty is a critical component of this sustainable Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics capacity. For FY 2017, RII Track-2 FEC proposals are invited on a single topic: “Genomes to Phenomes.” See solicitation NSF 17-503 for more details.
Track 2 Webinar:
Join EPSCoR Program Officers on November 15 or November 16 at 2:00 p.m. EST for an informational webinar on EPSCoR’s RII Track-2 program. [WebEx login instructions]
Letter of Intent is due January 10, 2017
Full proposals are due February 10, 2017
Track 4 – EPSCoR Research Fellows
RII Track-4 provides opportunities for non-tenured investigators to further develop their individual research potential through extended collaborative visits to the nation’s premier private, governmental, or academic research centers. Through these visits, the EPSCoR Research Fellows will be able to learn new techniques, benefit from access to unique equipment and facilities, and shift their research toward transformative new directions. The experience gained through the fellowship is intended to provide a foundation for research collaborations that span the recipient’s entire career. These benefits to the Fellows are also expected to in turn enhance the research capacity of their institutions and jurisdictions. Full details for RII Track-4 are available in the solicitation, NSF 17-509.
Track 4 Webinar:
Join EPSCoR Program Officers November 29 or November 30 at 2:00 p.m. EST for an informational webinar on EPSCoR’s RII Track-4 program. [WebEx login instructions]
Proposals due February 28, 2017
Please note that the deadline for the Notice of Intent has been changed to November 10, 2016 due to expected changes to the solicitation schedule by NASA.
The National Science Foundation and the American Association of Community Colleges issue a challenge: The 2016-2017 Community College Innovation Challenge.
Are you a community college student who has a novel idea that uses science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM)? The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) present the third annual Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC) that asks student teams to innovate a STEM-based solution to a real-world problem. Teams will submit projects in one of three themes: Maker to Manufacturer, Energy and Environment, and Security Technologies. Form your team with a faculty mentor and community and/or industry partner to enter. An entry consists of a written portion and a 90-second video. Visit the Promotional Toolkit, where you can download posters, postcards and more. Details at: https://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/communitycollege
