Funding Opportunities

Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs)

  • Jan 3, 2017 (NSF); The DIBBs program encourages development of robust and shared data-centric cyberinfrastructure capabilities, to accelerate interdisciplinary and collaborative research in areas of inquiry stimulated by data.

Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers Program (IUCRC)

  • Jan 3, 2017(Preliminary Proposals), Feb 28, 2017(Proposal) (NSF); Proposals for IUCRCs addressing any precompetitive research areas identified among the science and technology priorities for the nation are welcome.

Advanced Biomanufacturing of Therapeutic Cells (ABTC)

  • Jan 4, 2017(LOI), Apr 17, 2017 (Proposal) (NSF); solicits proposals to understand, design, and control cell manufacturing systems and processes that will enable reproducible, cost-effective, and high-quality production of cells with predictable performance for the identified therapeutic function.

BRAIN Initiative: Team-Research BRAIN Circuit Programs – TeamBCP

  • Feb 1, 2017(LOI) Mar 1,2017(Proposal deadline) (NIH);  This FOA will support integrated, interdisciplinary research teams from prior BRAIN technology and/or integrated approaches teams, and/or new projects from the research community that focus on examining circuit functions related to behavior, using advanced and innovative technologies.

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects – TargetedBCP

  • Feb 8, 2017(LOI) Mar 8,2017(Proposal deadline) (NIH);  The primary goal of this FOA is to solicit research projects using innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior.

BRAIN Initiative: Exploratory Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects – eTargetedBCP

  • Feb 8, 2017(LOI) Mar 8,2017(Proposal deadline) (NIH);  This FOA solicits applications for exploratory research projects that use innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior.

Scaling Up the Next Generation of Building Efficiency Packages

  • Feb 21, 2017 (DoE); seeks proposals that drive innovation in real building technology demonstrations while also fostering the collaboration of dynamic demonstration teams that include energy organizations, efficient building hubs, utilities, and building energy modeling professionals.

Algorithms for Threat Detection

  • Feb 21, 2017 (NSF); The Algorithms for Threat Detection program will support projects to develop innovative mathematical and statistical algorithms for analysis of large spatiotemporal datasets with application to quantitative models of human dynamics.

Research Initiation in Engineering Formation

  • Feb 23, 2017 (NSF); This program has two goals: 1) Support research in the Professional Formation of Engineers (PFE), and 2) Increase the community of researchers conducting PFE research.

Computer Science for All

  • Feb 28, 2017 (NSF); Proposals will be funded in two strands that foster design, implementation at scale, and research: 1) At the high school level, the focus is on preparing and supporting teachers to teach rigorous CS courses; and 2) At the preK-8 level, the focus is on designing, developing, and piloting instructional materials that integrate CS and CT into preK-8 classrooms.
