New solicitation released for Opportunities for Promoting Understanding through Synthesis (OPUS)

A revised solicitation for Opportunities for Promoting Understanding through Synthesis (OPUS) was recently released by the NSF’s Division of Environmental Biology (DEB). The solicitation (NSF 22-591) is targeted to individuals, typically at later-career stages, who have contributed significant insights to a field or body of research over time. The program provides an opportunity to revisit and synthesize that prior research into a unique, integrated product(s) useful to the scientific community, now and in the future.

The three major changes to the solicitation include:

  1. Proposals may now be submitted at any time.
  2. Budget details have been clarified.
  3. The Personnel List Spreadsheet is no longer required.
