2-4 Special Research Grants Program - Pest Management Alternatives (USDA)

The purpose of Pest Management Alternatives Program (PMAP) is to provide for and encourage the development and implementation of integrated pest management (IPM) practice, tactics, and systems for specific pest problems while reducing human and environmental risks. This purpose addresses the broad goals outlined in the "National Roadmap for Integrated Pest Management," developed by federal and non-federal IPM experts, practitioners, and stakeholders in 2004. The successful management of pest problems in commercial production is facing severe challenges due to regulatory changes, emergence of new pest problems, and the development of pest resistance to present management technologies. The greatest impact on current management technologies is in the production of speciality crops; however, other crops, including grain, forage and fiber, as well as animal health, are also being impacted by these changes.

2-8 Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (NSF)

Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI) is NSF's bold five-year initiative to create revolutionary science and engineering research outcomes made possible by innovations and advances in computational thinking. Computational thinking is defined comprehensively to encompass computational concepts, methods, models, algorithms, and tools. CDI seeks ambitious, transformative, multidisciplinary research proposals within or across the following three thematic areas: From Data to Knowledge: enhancing human cognition and generating new knowledge from a wealth of heterogeneous digital data; Understanding Complexity in Natural, Built, and Social Systems: deriving fundamental insights on systems comprising multiple interacting elements; and Virtual Organizations: enhancing discovery and innovation by bringing people and resources together across institutional, geographical and cultural boundaries. Two types of CDI awards will be supported as a result of the FY 2010 CDI competition: Type I awards will require efforts up to a level roughly comparable to: summer support for two investigators with complementary expertise; two graduate students; and their collective research needs (e.g. materials, supplies, travel) for three years. Type II awards will require larger efforts up to a level roughly comparable to: summer support for three investigators with complementary expertise; three graduate students; one or two senior personnel (including post-doctoral researchers and staff); and their collective research needs (e.g. materials, supplies, travel) for four years. The integrative contributions of the Type II team should clearly be greater than the sum of the contributions of each individual member of the team. NSF 10-506 (GG 11/18/09)

Deadline: Type I 2/4/2010; Type II 2/5/2010


2-9 NIDCD Research Core Centers (P30) (NIH)

The NICDC P30 Core Center grant contains one or more research-serving cores, providing centralized resources and facilities for funded R01 research projects. Although no funds are provided for direct support of research projects, a P30 helps to integrate and promote research in existing funded projects, and may include multi-disciplinary and regional collaborations. A Core Center must be an indentifiable organizational unit either within a single grantee institution or representing a consortium of cooperating institutions (e.g., geographic or web-based). The Center may serve as an intellectual hub to stimulate cooperative research, to increase the effectiveness, capabilities or productivity of current research, and/or to promote new research directions through collaborations. Only one P30 award is allowed per institution; exceptions may be made with documented prior NIDCD approval for different user groups working in different NIDCD mission areas within the same institution, but no R01 grants may be counted as qualifying for more than one P30.
