As MSU celebrates Valentine’s Day on and off campus, we wanted to put a smile on your face and give you an opportunity to get to know some of your Research Administrators and their pets. Together these sweet Research Admin companions help DER staff to support faculty by answering questions, ensuring sponsor proposal compliance, building budgets, sharing funding information, and more. See if you can guess which Valentine Pet goes with your Research Administrator.
The US-Israel BSF aims to make a positive contribution to the development
of climate solutions
through cross-disciplinary, collaborative research projects
between the two countries. Therefore BSF has launched a bi-annual call for
cross-disciplinary proposals that advance the conceptualization, development
and/or implementation of climate solutions. The new initiative will focus on
how aspects of climate related processes can be offset by novel technologies,
regulations, policy etc.
BSF is pleased to announce an invitation for 5-page preproposals (deadline
1 April 2022) proposing cross-disciplinary, US-Israel collaborative studies
that develop transformative concepts and ideas towards climate solutions. These
ideas/concepts address the impacts of climate change on the natural environment
as well as on human populations, their distributions and economic
Interested scientists are invited to form teams of experts that address
the goals of this call for proposals and consult the attached document. Should
questions arise regarding the scope of this call for proposals and technical
details of submission then please contact BSF staff for consultation.
Synopsis of Program: The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to further develop and nurture a national innovation ecosystem that guides the output of scientific discoveries closer to the development of technologies, products, processes, and services that benefit society. The goal of the NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Program, created in 2011 by NSF, is to reduce the time and risk associated with translating promising ideas and technologies from the laboratory to the marketplace, to increase the economic competitiveness of the United States, to encourage collaboration between academia and industry, and to train NSF-funded faculty, students, post-docs, and other researchers in innovation and entrepreneurship skills. The I-Corps Program utilizes experiential learning of customer and industry discovery, coupled with first-hand investigation of industrial problems and processes, to quickly assess the translational potential of inventions. The I-Corps Program is designed to support the commercialization of so-called "deep technologies," i.e., those based on fundamental discoveries in science and engineering. The I-Corps program addresses the skill and knowledge gap associated with the transformation of promising basic research outcomes into deep technology ventures (DTVs). ...
Students Will Perform Graduate Thesis Research at National Laboratories
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2022 Solicitation 1 cycle. Applications are due 5:00pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, May 4, 2022.
The SCGSR program supports awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory or host site in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist — with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall graduate theses while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories. SCGSR is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 780 graduate awardees from more than 150 different U.S. universities to conduct thesis research at all 17 DOE national laboratories across the nation.
The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists, in collaboration with the eight Office of Science research and advanced technology program offices and the DOE national laboratories/facilities. Program administration support is provided by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). More information can be found at https://science.osti.gov/wdts.
DER's Proposal Volume
The chart above shows DER's Proposal Volume from 2018 to 2022 as of (02/11/2022).
Description: The first seminar of 2022 will engage individuals from DER, OSP, and CGA to provide an overview of the lifecycle of an award - from proposal development to award close-out. Join us for a clearer understanding of the roles and responsibilities at each stage. You will be better prepared to submit fundable proposals and to effectively and efficiently manage subsequent awards from start to finish with the help of your MSU support system. All researchers are welcome and are encouraged to be prepared with any questions. Watch it now on demand!!!
