Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers Program
Full announcement
The IUCRC program catalyzes breakthrough pre-competitive research by enabling close and sustained engagement between industry innovators, world-class academic teams, and government agencies. IUCRCs help industry partners and government agencies connect directly and efficiently with university researchers to achieve three primary objectives:1) Conduct high-impact research to meet shared and critical industrial needs in companies of all sizes; 2) Enhance U.S. global leadership in driving innovative technology development, and 3) Identify, mentor and develop a diverse, highly skilled science and engineering workforce.

ROSES 2020: Citizen Science for Earth Systems Program
Full announcement
All proposals must demonstrate clear linkages between citizen science and NASA observation systems to advance NASA's Earth science (see https://science.nasa.gov/earth-science/big-questions). Projects that demonstrate value in adding or enhancing crowdsourcing in scientific workflows are encouraged. Calibration and validation, augmentation, or enhancement to significantly increase the quality, resolution, scope, or extent of remotely sensed data are all possible focal areas. Combination of remotely sensed data with other data sources in concert with a citizen science effort to dramatically advance an area of Earth science is also welcome. September 11, 2020
DOD Multidisciplinary Research Program of the University Research Initiative
Full announcement
Variety of programs relevant to Office of Naval Research, Army Research Office, and Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Topics include dynaming tuning of thermal transport, quantum network science, and metasurface edge sensing. Consult RFA for more. September 14, 2020
Youth Engagement, Education, and Employment
Full announcement
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's (USFWS or Service) National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS) is accepting proposals from non-profit, state, and local government youth and veteran serving organizations with the interest and capacity to work cooperatively with the USFWS to develop introductory educational experiences in natural resource careers to young people and veterans, including culturally, ethnically and economically diverse students, and underserved communities that traditionally have low participation in outdoor recreation activities through hands-on experience and mentoring at a variety of USFWS programs including but not limited to, national wildlife refuges, fish hatcheries, and ecological services offices. Under this program, individuals and/or groups of youth, young adults, and veterans. September 15, 2020
US-Israel Binational Agricultural Research and Development Fund
Full announcement
BARD projects, conducted cooperatively by American and Israeli scientists, cover all phases of agricultural research and development, including integrated projects and strategic or applied research. Cooperative research entails active collaboration between Israeli and American scientists. The following research areas were identified by the Board of Directors as top priorities for the coming years: Increased Efficiency of Agricultural Production Protection of Plants and Animals Against Biotic and Abiotic Stress Food Quality, Safety and Security Water Quality & Quantity Functional Genomics and Proteomics Sensors and Robotics Sustainable Bio-Energy Systems September 15, 2020
Joint DMS/NIGMS Initiative to Support Research at the Interface of the Biological and Mathematical Sciences
Full announcement
The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS)in the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) at the National Science Foundation (NSF)and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)plan to support fundamental research in mathematics and statistics necessary to answer questions in the biological and biomedical sciences. Both agencies recognize the need to promote research at the interface between mathematical and life sciences. This program is designed to encourage new collaborations, as well as to support innovative activities by existing teams. The joint DMS/NIGMS initiative offers two submission tracks: Track 1 - for projects with a total budget of up to $600,000 and an award duration of 3 years, and Track 2 - for projects with a total budget of up to $1,200,000 and award duration of 3-4 years.

Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP)
Full announcement
The Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) supports genome-scale research that addresses challenging questions of biological, societal and economic importance. PGRP encourages the development of innovative tools, technologies and resources that empower a broad plant research community to answer scientific questions on a genome-wide scale. Emphasis is placed on the scale and depth of the question being addressed and the creativity of the approach. Data produced by plant genomics should be usable, accessible, integrated across scales and of high impact across biology. Training, broadening participation, and career development are essential to scientific progress and should be integrated in all PGRP-funded projects. September 30, 2020
Full announcement
The Biosensing program is part of the Engineering Biology and Health cluster, which also includes 1) the Biophotonics program; 2) the Cellular and Biochemical Engineering program; 3) the Disability and Rehabilitation Engineering program; and 4) the Engineering of Biomedical Systems program. The Biosensing program supports fundamental engineering research on devices and methods for measurement and quantification of biological analytes. Examples of biosensors include, but are not limited to, electrochemical/electrical biosensors, optical biosensors, plasmonic biosensors, and paper-based and nanopore-based biosensors. In addition to advancing biosensor technology development, proposals that address critical needs in biomedical research, public health, food safety, agriculture, forensic, environmental protection, and homeland security are highly encouraged.
