The Alaska NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research is beginning the pre-proposal process for the FY20 cooperative agreement notice research solicitation.

NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement, in cooperation with NASA’s Mission Directorates — aeronautics research, human exploration and operations, and science — the Office of the Chief Technologist, and NASA’s 10 centers, asks for yearly research proposals through its cooperative agreement notice research solicitation. Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to the strategic research and technology development priorities of one or more of the mission directorates and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction. Through this solicitation NASA seeks to increase research funding to EPSCoR states that historically have been underfunded by NASA.

The deadline to submit a notice of intent is Alaska NASA EPSCoR’s close of business Monday, July 15.

Please see the Alaska NASA website for more information on the solicitation and pre-proposal process.

Las Vegas, Nevada

What happens in Vegas...Strengthens the IDeA Network!

Abstract Submission for both oral and poster presentations is now open! The deadline to submit is July 15th at 11:59 PM. Submissions are welcome from faculty, postdocs, students and IDeA programs (INBRE, COBRE, CTR-IN, NAIPI, etc.). Please note that we are especially interested in abstracts related to two specialty breakout sessions:  Drug Discovery, and Opioid and Other Drug Abuse.

Noticing More Notices of Special Interest?
New post on NIH Extramural Nexus

You might have noticed an increased us of Guide Notices, rather than full program announcements to alert the community of specific research topics of interest, called Notices of Special Interest (NOSI). This is not a new concept, as some NIH institutes have been using this approach for many years - we are just formalizing it and expanding its use across all institutes.

Notices of Special Interest highlight areas of scientific interest and point to existing funding opportunity announcements (often parent announcements) for submission of the applications. NIH currently has a large number of non-parent program announcements with standard submission and review requirements that only vary from one another in the scientific topics highlighted. These parent announcements (PAs) will be phased out over time and will be replaced with NOSIs. This change in no way diminishes our interest in these scientific topics. It simply streamlines how we announce our interests.

The process for submitting an application remains the same. To respond to a NOSI, simply complete the application form package associated with the funding opportunity announcement designated in the notice. Make sure you follow all application guidance in the NOSI. If application guide, Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), and notice instructions conflict, then the FOA instructions win over the application guide and the notice instructions win over the FOA.

We will continue to post full funding opportunity announcements for requests for applications, program announcements with special receipt/referral/review considerations (PARs), program announcements with set-aside funds (PASs), and parent announcements.

For more on NOIs, see the full Guide Notice and the related FAQs.
