Every now and then we hear from Program Managers beyond DEB or NSF asking for help in alerting the PI communities about funding opportunities. Here are two current funding opportunities that have come across our inboxes:
Funding opportunity under NSF’s Science, Engineering, and Education for Sustainability (SEES) portfolio,
Sustainability Research Networks Competition (SRN), solicitation # NSF 14-534:
The goalof the Sustainability Research Networks (SRN) competition is to bring together multidisciplinary teams of researchers, educators, managers, policymakers and other stakeholders to conduct collaborative research that addresses fundamental challenges in sustainability. The 2014 SRN competition will fund research networks with a focus on urban sustainability.
Proposals for the 2014 competition will be due on April 29, 2014.
For more information about the SRN program, please see: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503645&org=NSF&sel_org=NSF&from=fund.
Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP):
HFSP supports international (preferably intercontinental) collaborations in basic life science research. Applications are invited for grants to support innovative approaches to understanding complex mechanisms of living organisms. Applicants are expected to develop novel lines of research distinct from their ongoing research. Preliminary results are not required.
Program Grants are for independent scientists at all stages of their careers while Young Investigators’ Grants are for teams of scientists who are all within 5 years of establishing an independent laboratory and within 10 years of obtaining their PhDs. Both provide 3 years support for 2 – 4 member teams, with not more than one member from any one country, unless critical for the innovative nature of the project.
