You are invited to join our DER team as we present:DER is Here to Help(proposal & proposal development resources geared to promote success)
For newer faculty, it is critical to understand all of the incredible
resources that are available to help strengthen each of your future
proposals. It is also important to understand the required steps to
submit a university-endorsed proposal. For more senior faculty,
awareness of new resources may help to streamline your proposal
development processes and possibly open new streams of funding. Join the
DER team as we present DER is Here to Help. This seminar will
focus on services offered within the Division of Engineering Research,
and the various ways we can help you increase your sponsored research
expenditures. Feel free to share any questions during the session.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently released a new solicitation topic as part of its FY22 Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) Program, entitled, Engineering Living Systems (ELiS). The EFRI-ELiS topic will support transdisciplinary research to advance the design, modeling, fabrication, and manufacturing of engineered living systems to address societal needs as well as the associated ethical, legal, and social implications of using living systems as building blocks and components for next-generation sustainable engineering. More specifically, ELiS will seed and catalyze transformative and convergence research with the goal of creating living systems for sustainable engineering with a focus on three national/societal needs: Thread 1) a sustainable built environment, Thread 2) monitoring and surveillance for a safe built environment, and Thread 3) biomining for sustainable metal extraction and resource recovery. ELiS will also contribute to the development of the basic science and engineering knowledge needed to advance the respective missions of our Federal Partner Agencies including 1) NASA’s goals for sustainable space exploration and 2) the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)’s goals for the development and deployment of enabling capabilities to understand the built environment, threats, and vulnerabilities.
What does groundwater have to do with lake algal blooms?
The source of troublesome lake algae is not always clear, but an
interdisciplinary research project with two Michigan State University
researchers found an answer may include colder groundwater that feeds
some inland lakes. This finding could help predict the formation of
harmful algal blooms to mitigate their impact on drinking water,
tourism, fishing and fish toxicity. ...
