The Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) held its latest Virtual Office Hour on January 9, 2023. Program Officers discussed the updated Biodiversity on a Changing Planet solicitation (NSF 23-542). We host these office hours 1-2pm EST on the 2nd Monday of every month. There is a designated theme each time, but attendees are welcome to ask about other NSF-related topics. Program Officers (POs) from different research areas are present at each Virtual Office Hour, so a wide range of scientific perspectives are represented.
The presentation and other documents are available here:
PAPPG 23-1 (effective for proposals submitted on or after Jan 30, 2023)
Here is a link to a recording of the presentation and the transcript. Please note that the question-and-answer portion starts at the 28-minute time mark.
Please reach out to a PO if you have any questions about the proposal submission and review process in DEB programs. NSF has suggested 5 tips on working with Program Officers as part of the NSF 101 series on our Science Matters blog.
