On April 24, 2017, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will initiate a new pilot requiring the use of a template for identifying Collaborators and Other Affiliations (COA) information for Principal Investigators (PIs), co-PIs, and other senior project personnel identified on proposals submitted in FastLane. The NSF Proposal and Award Policies & Procedures Guide (https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf17001) (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1) requires PIs, co-PIs, and other senior project personnel identified on NSF proposals to individually upload COA information as a Single Copy Document (see PAPPG Chapter II.C.1e).

NSF uses this information during the merit review process to help manage reviewer selection. To expedite identification of potential reviewers, having a standard, searchable format for this information is essential. The new pilot will standardize COA information across the Foundation and will ensure that the information is submitted in a searchable format. Results from the pilot will be assessed and will determine how to proceed with this section of the proposal in the future.

This is a gentle reminder that the Internal Grant Program proposals are due this Friday.

Eligible UNO faculty and research employees are encouraged to apply for one of these awards as a means of honing their grant-making skills, and for the purpose of developing new areas of research or scholarly endeavors.

Budget Note: These internal awards may be used to support up to one month regular salary, but may not be used for extra compensation. The current fringe benefit rate is charged and must be included within the appropriate budget limit (FY 17 fringe is 47% and FY 18 is 49%). Indirect cost is not charged on internal awards. The forms and guidelines are available on the ORSP IGP SharePoint site: https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/igp/default.aspx

Deadline for submission of applications on ORSP Routing Form: April 7, 2017

By applying for an internal grant you are agreeing to present your accomplishments at a research event in FY 18.

Authors Talk and Showcase - The showcase will include an exhibit and slideshow of recent faculty research and creative works and brief informal presentations by faculty about their research and scholarly activity. The event will take place in the newly renovated 4th floor of the library, where there is a permanent display of UNO authors.

To be included in the showcase, you can do one or both of the following:

1) Submit any publications (books, book chapters, articles, creative work) from 2012 to the present for the physical and virtual exhibits;

2) Present your work for your colleagues in an informal “lightning round” session (approximately 5 minutes per presenter)

This is an inclusive event and is open to authors of traditional printed materials such as books but we welcome musicians to present their album or other accomplishments.

Artists - All artists are welcome to exhibit their works in the newly renovated gallery on the 4th floor of the library. Poster boards and limited shelving will be provided to display artwork.

Performers - Musicians and performers are welcome to participate in the event. Live or recorded music would be welcome.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce the opening of the competition for the 2017 Internal Grant Programs (IGP).

Brian Seeger once called his old guitar teacher to tell her thank you. She’d given him lessons for six months when he was 11. When she found out her former student had become a professional guitarist she was, in his words, “distraught.” It just didn’t seem like a suitable profession, she told him. Seeger, associate professor of music at the University of New Orleans and noted jazz guitarist, now laughs about the conversation—and, of course, he begs to differ.

At 56, Seeger has carved out a life packed with teaching, recording, playing, touring and helping others find their way in the changing world of music. His band, Organic Trio, last week charted No. 7 on the U.S. Jazz Radio Charts with its second album, Saturn’s Spell. It’s an exciting development, especially for an album that was only released Jan. 27. At the same time it charted No. 7, it also was the “most reported,” according to Jazz Week. That means that more stations reported playing the album than any other album. “People I know who have been in the business for a while are somewhat in shock,” he said. “It is pretty unheard of for a band that mostly tours in Europe to chart in the US so high and so quickly … I’m just super thrilled to know folks are hearing it.”

Made with the help a $5,000 grant from the University of New Orleans Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, Saturn’s Spell features the smooth musicianship of Jean-Yves Jung of France on Hammond organ and Paul Wiltgen of New York on drums—a three-person combo that started eight years ago thanks, in part, to connections made through the University of New Orleans.

Seeger said the internal grant provided the flexibility the band needed to afford high-end mastering. It also gave him leverage to seek additional grant money for the project, including from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation and the Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers of Music. “I’m proud to have the University of New Orleans logo on the back of that CD,” he said. “I’m proud of where I work and what I do. We’re a vital, contemporary program.”
