See Section V (Full Proposal Preparation Instructions) of this solicitation for additional information about the allowable maximum annual budget for years one through ten of each award.

Each NSF Engine can receive funding for up to 10 years. The initial two years of funding will support a ramp-up period. Continued support for an NSF Engine will be contingent upon its overall performance, including meeting its annual performance goals.

During the ramp-up period, an NSF Engine can be funded for a total of $15,000,000 over two years. The total amount of an NSF Engine award will not exceed $160,000,000 from NSF (over a period not exceeding ten years).

Beyond Year 1, NSF will annually conduct a comprehensive assessment of the NSF Engine’s performance, which will inform subsequent-year funding. A determination that the NSF Engine has failed to perform during an NSF annual review may result in

Please Note: Individuals considering submitting a conference proposal are strongly encouraged to contact the PAC program officers prior to submitting a full proposal by emailing a one-page summary of the topic and scope of the conference, a list of the anticipated speakers and the anticipated budget request.

Award information

Anticipated Funding Amount is approximately $5,000,000 – $7,300,000, for all new and continuing awards combined, pending availability of funds. Most research awards supported by PAC range between $350,000 and $600,000; CAREER awards between $500,000 and $715,000; conferences, group travel or other community-development/community-building activities awards between $20,000 and $50,000. All figures in the preceding sentences are totals that include both direct and indirect costs for the entire duration of the award. Somewhat larger funding amounts may be possible under limited circumstances, such as co-funding from other NSF programs or EPSCoR support

Synopsis

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is soliciting proposals for managing the operation and maintenance of the National Geophysical Facility (hereafter referred to as NGF) an NSF-funded major facility. The NGF is designed to enable the research community to ask, and address, questions about a variety of Earth processes from local to global scales. NGF will operate global and regional networks of sensors; provide a lending library of instrumentation and support services to enable PI-led field experiments; support archiving, quality control, and delivery of geophysical data and data product development; and provide education, outreach, workforce development, and community engagement activities that serve a wide range of audiences. NGF will be a single facility, with a single operator that will succeed NSF’s current geophysical facilities, the Seismological Facility for the Advancement of GEoscience (SAGE) and the Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of GEoscience (GAGE).

Synopsis

Program Mission:

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.

Program Overview:

The IUCRC program provides a structure for academic researchers to conduct fundamental, pre-competitive research of shared interest to industry and government organizations. These organizations pay membership fees to a consortium so that they can collectively envision and fund research, with at least 90% of Member funds allocated to the direct costs of these shared research projects.

IUCRCs are formed
