Letters of Intent Due January 24th, 2020

FEDERAL FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: Regional Vulnerability Assessments for Ocean Acidification

The Ocean Acidification Program is soliciting proposals for collaborative projects of up to 3 years in duration that synthesize ocean acidification information at a regional scale (e.g. Large Marine Ecosystem, large estuary or collection of small estuaries, and state or collection of states in US waters) to determine where societal vulnerabilities to ocean acidification exist or are emerging, in order to provide actionable information for marine resource decision makers. This funding opportunity will not support the collection of new chemical or ecological observations or species response data. Social science data collection is permitted.

Information about this opportunity can be found here:https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html?keywords=11.017 This grant is Funding Opportunity Number: NOAA-OAR-OAP-2020-2006333.  Email Letters of Intent to erica.h.ombres@noaa.gov. Full proposals should be submitted through grants.gov

Important dates:  Letters of Intent are due January 24th and full proposals are due March 27th.

Federal Funding Opportuntity: Domestic Coral Reef Conservation Grant Competition

NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program

This competitive program provides funding via grants or cooperative agreements to institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, and local and Indian tribal government agencies to support coral reef conservation projects in the United States, as authorized under the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000 (16 U.S.C. §§ 6401-6409).

These awards are intended to support coral reef conservation projects in shallow water coral reef ecosystems, including reefs at mesophotic depths, in American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Florida, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and coral-dominated banks in U.S. portions of the Gulf of Mexico. Applicants may propose projects in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and the U.S. Pacific Remote Islands, but the Coral Reef Conservation Program does not consider these locations as priorities under this announcement.

Priorities fall within five major categories: 1) Improve Fisheries Sustainability; 2) Reduce Land-Based Sources of Pollution; 3) Increase Resilience to Climate Change; 4) Restore Viable Coral Populations; and 5) Local and Emerging Management Needs. These categories are described in more detail in the full Federal Funding Opportunity announcement. Applications should address CRCP’s national priorities or the jurisdictional priorities as described in the five categories. 

Applicants should submit complete applications via www.grants.gov by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on January 29, 2019.

Federal Funding Opportunity: Regional Ocean Acidification Observing Optimization Study

NOAA OCEAN ACIDIFICATION PROGRAM

The NOAA/OAR/Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is soliciting proposals for studies investigating ocean acidification monitoring strategies that would offer an observing system design that best characterizes and tracks ocean acidification within U.S. Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) optimized towards characterizing the conditions most relevant to ecologically and economically important marine species.

Letters of intent due February 5th, 2019 (EXTENDED Deadline)

Call for Applications: Innovation Lab: Learning the Power of Data in Chemistry

National Science Foundation

The National Science Foundation CHE: DCL invites chemists, chemical engineers, statisticians, applied mathematicians, and computer scientists to apply for the

NSF CHE/DMS Innovation Lab: Learning the Power of Data in Chemistry

A host of new opportunities for chemists and data scientists is envisioned for data science and chemistry to interchange ideas, develop new methods, and address long-standing problems. Chemistry has always been a data-driven science, but recent advances in chemical analysis, synthesis, and modeling are providing a deluge of new data that are multimodal, multi-scale, and heterogeneous. Effective collection, analysis, and interpretation of this data has the potential to catalyze new directions and provide transformative solutions to some of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. In this Innovation Lab, 20 chemists and 20 data science researchers will meet face to face, learn to speak each others languages, and begin collaborative projects on site. A mini-bootcamp will be organized to provide a training ground for participants to familiarize them with chemical and data-science challenges and approaches.
