NSF 14-536 High Performance System Acquisition: Building a More Inclusive Computing Environment for Science and Engineering

 

 

JHU Limited Submission Cover Sheet

The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced it is accepting proposals for the High Performance System Acquisition: Building a More Inclusive Computing Environment for Science and Engineering Program.  Specifically, NSF is interested in receiving proposals from organizations willing to serve as Resource Providers within the NSF eXtreme Digital (XD) program. This solicitation is intended to complement previous NSF investments in advanced computational infrastructure by exploring new and creative approaches to delivering innovative computational resources to an increasingly diverse community and portfolio of scientific research and education.

It is estimated awards will be from $2,000,000, to $10,000,000.  03/31/2014 05/14/2014

NSF 14-541 -Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) in Engineering

 

 

 

JHU Limited Submission Cover Sheet

The National Science Foundation announced it is accepting applications for the Nanotechnology- Undergraduate Education (NUE) in Engineering Program.  The NUE  focuses on integrating nanoscale science, engineering, and technology through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches into undergraduate engineering education. Research and education projects in nanoscale science and engineering will continue to be supported in the relevant NSF programs and divisions.  NUE in Engineering emphasizes new approaches to undergraduate engineering education through interdisciplinary collaborations.  Anticipated Funding Amount: $1,900,000 pending availability of funds. Each award will be up to a maximum of $200,000 for two years. 04/04/2014 05/27/2014

NSF 14-544 - Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM)

 

JHU Limited Submission Cover Sheet

 

 

 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently announced the Scalable Nanomanufacturing (SNM) program for 2014 involving collaborative research and education in the area of scalable nanomanufacturing, including the long-term societal implications of the large-scale implementation of nanomanufacturing innovations.  This program is in response to and is a component of the National Nanotechnoloogy Initiative Signature Initiative:  Sustainable Nanomanufacturing – Creating the Industries of the Future (http://www.nano.gov/node/611).  It is estimated that five to eight projects will receive funding for this research effort in the range of $250,000-$375,000 per year for four years--depending on the scope of the proposed work. The total request for NSF funding for each project, for all investigators and all organizations, may not exceed $1,500,000.   05/01/14 06/16/14

NSF 14-546 - Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM)

 

JHU Limited Submission Cover Sheet

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently announced the Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) program is accepting proposals for “innovative research projects to foster ethical STEM research in all of the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports, including within interdisciplinary, inter-institutional and international contexts. CCE STEM research projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what constitutes responsible or irresponsible, just or unjust scientific practices and sociotechnical systems, and how to best instill students with this knowledge.

Anticipated Type of Award: Standard Grant

Estimated Number of Awards: 6 to 8

Anticipated Funding Amount: $3,050,000

Subject to the availability of funds.

NSF 14-548 - National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT)

 

 

JHU Limited Submission Cover Sheet

 

NSF announced a new program entitled “NSF Research Traineeship (NRT)”  This program is “designed to encourage the development of bold, new, potentially transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training that ensure that graduate students develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. The NRT program initially has one priority research theme - Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE); in addition, proposals are encouraged on any other crosscutting, interdisciplinary theme. In either case, proposals should identify the alignment of project research themes with national research priorities and the need for innovative approaches to train graduate students in those areas.

It is expected that NRT Awards will be up to five years in duration with a budget of up to $3,000,000.   Please note:  “The budget request must be consistent with the scope of the proposed NRT project, including program development and number of supported trainees.
