Supporting Partner Implementation of Russia Sanctions

11/22/22

01/31/23

TTU may submit one application.

ISN/CTR builds foreign partner capacity to support the implementation of bilateral sanctions imposed against Russia for its unprovoked aggression in Ukraine. These sanctions not only impose costs upon Russia and Belarus but are a critical tool in preserving international unity and for partners to show support for Ukraine. Putin and the Kremlin believe that they can “outlast” the support for these sanctions. Therefore, as the war continues, it is important to target those who deliberately or inadvertently enable sanctions evasions.

Russian strategic losses, partial mobilization, and its increasing desperation of targeting civilian populations and infrastructure have greatly increased the reputational and financial risks of continuing to engage with Russian markets, especially for countries that are closely emmeshed with the U.S. and EU economies.

TTU may submit one application.

The Department of State's Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction (ISN/CTR) is pleased to announce an open competition for assistance awards through this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). ISN/CTR sponsors foreign assistance activities funded by the Nonproliferation, Antiterrorism, Demining and Related Programs (NADR) account, and focuses on mitigating weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and WMD-related delivery systems proliferation and security threats from non-state actors and proliferator states.

ISN/CTR builds foreign partner capacity to counter proliferator state's advanced conventional weapons (ACW) procurement and proliferation networks. The Kremlin's recent announcement of a partial mobilization along with its need to resupply existing occupying forces in Ukraine is expected to increase Russia's demand for additional weapon systems and critical defense technologies, either domestically produced or imported from abroad. Russia's war in Ukraine continues to demonstrate the failures and deficiencies inherent in Russian ACW to prospective buyers. Russia's continued war in Ukraine is pushing it closer to regimes such as Iran and PRC for access to international markets, critical supply-chains, and as seen in the case with Iran, weapons systems such as attack drones for use in Ukraine.

An organization may not submit more than one (1) new or resubmitted PFI-RP proposal to a deadline of this solicitation.

The Research Partnerships (PFI-RP) track seeks to achieve the same goals as the PFI-TT track by supporting instead complex, multi-faceted technology development projects that are typically beyond the scope of a single researcher or institution and require a multi-organizational, interdisciplinary, synergistic collaboration. A PFI-RP project requires the creation of partnerships between academic researchers and third-party organizations such as industry, non-academic research organizations, federal laboratories, public or non-profit technology transfer organizations or other universities. Such partnerships are needed to conduct applied research on a stand-alone larger project toward commercialization and societal impact. In the absence of such synergistic partnership, the project's likelihood for success would be minimal.

Modern Equipment for Shared-use Biomedical Research Facilities: Advancing Research-Related Operations

10/15/21

12/01/21

The solicitation provides support through the R24 mechanism for the purchase and installment of advanced equipment to “enhance and modernize research-supporting operations of biomedical research facilities.”  All equipment funded by this opportunity must be placed in a core facility, an animal research facility, or a shared-use space that would benefit the overall research community at the institution.  This opportunity does not support funding for research instruments that acquire experimental data or computer and data storage systems supporting data collection, storage, or analysis.  Funding for maintaining current operations or fixing broken equipment is also not permitted. 

Only one application per institution is allowed.

Applications must emphasize how new equipment or an integrated equipment system would be integral in promoting the support of specialized research.  An integrated system of equipment is defined as a piece of equipment that works in conjunction with another to perform a task that cannot be completed without the other.  Applicants are also encouraged to use the highest level of energy efficient equipment to reduce environmental impacts. 

Award Information: The maximum project award is $400,000 and projects under $25,000 will not be considered.  Multiple pieces of the same equipment are permitted, however the minimum award amount for a single piece of equipment is $10,000.  Minor alteration and renovation efforts that would ensure proper installation are also permitted, if applicable, but the cost should not exceed 15 percent of the equipment costs.  The project period should not exceed one year.

Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

11/4/21

2/24/22

The Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award is intended to identify the most talented Early Stage Investigators (ESIs) who intend to make a long-term commitment to research in the Environmental Health Sciences and assist them in launching an innovative research program focused on understanding the effects of environmental exposure on people's health.

Only one application per School or College within a University is allowed.

The budget for direct costs is composed of two elements - research direct costs and career enhancement costs. For most applications, the budget for research direct costs should be limited to $250,000 per year. With strong justification, research projects which have inherently higher costs may request direct costs of up to $400,000 per year. Career enhancement direct costs are limited to $250,000 direct costs, which can be distributed over the 5-year award period. Note: the total direct cost budget (research plus career enhancement) may not exceed $475,000 in any year of the award.

The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum project period is 5 years.

The Moore Fellows - 2021-2022 

10/8/21

Nominations Deadline 

11/12/21

Agency Deadline

12/13/21

Institutions may submit up to two nominations. Candidates must be faculty, research scientists, postdocs or other full-time staff who can receive funding through their institutions. Candidates must be no more than 10 years past receiving the terminal advanced degree in their field (M.S., Ph.D. or M.D. received on or after 2012).

The scope of this call is intentionally wide: proposed projects do not need to fall within our current funding priorities but should be broadly within the program areas of foundation interest (science, environmental conservation, and patient care). For patient care, inventions should resonate with our focus on improving the experience and outcomes of patients with solutions that improve clinical diagnosis. Each fellow will receive $200,000 per year from the foundation for three years.

In addition, the foundation will provide the host institution with $25,000 each year to cover costs associated with administering the grant, resulting in a total three-year award of $675,000. Each host institution will be required to contribute $50,000 in annual direct support of the inventor's work.
