GENERAL

27-1 Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) (DOD)

The Department of Defense (DoD) announces the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP), a part of the University Research Initiative (URI). DURIP is designed to improve the capabilities of U.S. institutions of higher education to conduct research and to educate scientists and engineers in areas important to national defense, by providing funds for the acquisition of research equipment. This announcement seeks proposals to purchase instrumentation in support of research areas of interest to the DoD, including areas of research supported by the administering agencies. A central purpose of the DURIP is to provide equipment to enhance research-related education. Therefore proposals must address the impact of the equipment on the institutions's ability to educate students, through research, in disciplines important to DoD missions. AFOSR-BAA-2009-5 (GG 7/14/09)

Deadline: 9/15/2009

27-2 Science of Science and Innovation Policy (NSF)

The Science of Science & Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program supports research designed to advance the scientific basis of science and innovation policy. Research funded by the program thus develops, improves and expands models, analytical tools, data and metrics that can be applied in the science policy decision making process. For example, research proposals may develop behavioral and analytical conceptualizations, frameworks or models that have applications across a broad array of SciSIP challenges, including the relationship between participation and innovation or creativity. Proposals may also develop methodologies to analyze science and technology data, and to convey the information to a variety of audiences. Researchers are also encouraged to create or improve science and engineering data, metrics and indicators reflecting current discovery, particularly, proposals that demonstrate the viability of collecting and analyzing data on knowledge generation and innovation in organizations. PD-09-7626 (GG 7/15/09)

Deadline: 9/9/2009

27-3 CreativeIT (NSF)

The CreativeIT Program solicits proposals for projects that explore synergistic cross disciplinary research in creativity and computer science and information technology. Information technology is playing an increasing role in extending the capability of human creative thinking and problem solving. The study of creativity and computing as a way to advance computer science and information technology, cognitive science, engineering, education, or science can lead to new models of creativity and creative computational processes, innovative approaches to education that encourage creativity, innovative modes of research that include creative professionals, and new technology to support human creativity.

AGRICULTURE

27-4 Healthy Urban Food Enterprise Development (HUFED) Center (USDA)

The purpose of the HUFED Center grant is to establish and support a Healthy Urban Food Enterprise Development Center to increase access to healthy affordable foods, including locally produced agricultural products, to underserved communities. The HUFED Center will provide training and technical assistance for food enterprises and award sub-grants to eligible entities for healthy food enterprise development.

ARTS & HUMANITIES

27-5 Enduring Questions: Pilot Course Grants (NEH)

The Enduring Questions grant program supports a faculty member's development of a new course that will foster intellectual community through the study of an enduring question. This course will encourage undergraduate students and a teacher to grapple with a fundamental question addressed by the humanities, and to join together in a deep and sustained program of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day. An Enduring Questions grant supports the development of a new undergraduate humanities course that must be taught at least twice during the grant period. The grant supports the work of a faculty member in designing, preparing, and assessing the course. It may also be used for ancillary activities that enhance faculty-student intellectual community, such as visits to museums and artistic or cultural events. An Enduring Questions course may be taught by a faculty member from any department or discipline in the humanities or by a faculty member outside the humanities (e.g., astronomy, biology, economics, law, mathematics, medicine, psychology), so long as humanities sources are central to the course. 20090915-AQ (GG 7/6/09)

SOCIAL SCIENCES

27-13 Human Social Culture Behavior Modeling (ONR)

As a result of the Quadrennial Defense Review Report on lessons in ongoing Irregular Warfare (IW) and Security, Stability, Transition, and Reconstruction Operations (SSTRO), beginning in Fiscal Year 2008 the Department of Defense created a new R&D program to develop a science base and associated technologies for human, social, and culture behavior (HSCB) modeling. The military capability needs being addressed center on enablement of modeling for IW and SSTRO and on using computational models to support operations analysis, intelligence analysis, training, and joint experimentation. The overarching goal is to provide DoD and the US Government with the ability to understand and effectively operate in human/social,/culture terrains inherent to nonconventional warfare missions.
