NSF BIO has announced a new, short-term opportunity for funding to explore the use of National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) data and samples. “NEON is a continental scale research instrument consisting of geographically distributed infrastructure, networked via cybertechnology into an integrated research platform for regional to continental scale ecological research.“
The Dear Colleague Letter* calls for proposals for Conferences or EAGER research projects to begin making use of the data streams, specimens, and samples provided by NEON.
Initial responses to this opportunity must be received by email May 8, 2015. From the letter:
Interested PIs must email a 3-page (maximum) summary of their research ideas and planned activities to NEONresearch@nsf.gov by close of business, Friday, May 8, 2015.
The summaries will be reviewed internally and those ideas that best meet the goals of the Dear Colleague Letter will be invited to submit full Conference or EAGER proposals through FastLane in June with awards expected to be made before September 30, 2015.
Please read the full Dear Colleague Letter and contact NEONresearch@nsf.gov for answers to questions and further guidance.

FYI: There’s apparently an issue with the email alias. Our IT folks are working to correct it. We’ll update when we hear it has been fixed.
This has been resolved.
