This is the list of all contributions published on this web site, in chronological order.

NASA will be hosting a Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) with Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) researchers at the GSFC facility in Greenbelt, MD on Wednesday June 27, 2018. As part of the NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) program here in Louisiana we are soliciting applicants who would like to attend this TIM and investigate new avenues of research with NASA partners. The TIM will be hosted on the GSFC campus where the morning of 6/27 will consist of round table discussions with individual research groups followed by lunch on-site at GSFC. The afternoon will include research laboratory familiarization. Research topics discussed during the TIM will be a subset of the GSFC research areas listed at the end of this email. Applicants should identify their top three choices from the list. Travel up to about $1,500 per person would be paid through a Louisiana NASA EPSCoR Travel Assistance Program (TAP) award. The travel estimate assumes three days of travel, with meals and rental car plus lodging at a TBD conference hotel near GSFC. It is expected that travel to Greenbelt, MD will take place on Tuesday June 26 and return to Louisiana will occur on Thursday June 28. Airfare to Baltimore / Washington International (BWI) airport (nearest to GSFC) is included in the travel estimate. Note that no foreign nationals will be allowed to attend this meeting. However, lawful permanent residents (green card holders) should be able to participate (I will need to check on this one). If you wish to participate in the GSFC TIM you must email me at guzik@phunds.phys.lsu.edu with the following information as soon as possible and definitely before April 1, 2018 1. Statement that you are committed to attend the GSFC TIM 2. List of your top three GSFC research topics. 3. Statement that you are a U.S. citizen and the following information: Full Name (as on Driver’s License) Driver’s License Number Driver’s License Expiration Date State Issuing Driver’s License Name of Institution of employment: 4. Statement that you are a lawful permanent U.S. resident with a Green Card. (Required information TBD). 5. Contact information including email address, office telephone number, mobile telephone number.

Just a reminder…..if any of your tenants, clients, faculty, program managers, companies, etc. plan to attend the 2018 SBIR Road Tour event coming up April 20th in B .Rouge, and they plan to schedule time for one-on-one meetings, they should complete a Quad Chart (sample attached) and bring copies with them to hand to the various SBIR-STTR federal program agency representatives as they talk about their technologies to offer as a proposal. It would also be a really good idea if attendees did an agency/topic search on their ideas/technology prior to the event. This can be done at www.sbir.gov You can search by agency, year, or enter some key word searches at that site. Any preparation like this will make your one-on-one meeting go a lot smoother and demonstrate you have taken time to do some “homework.” Also keep in mind I have a short PowerPoint that is a prep for the April 20th event if you want it. Again, this is all designed to insure that participants get maximum benefit while attending the event.

April 16 to April 20, 2018 The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to convey the non-dilutive technology funding opportunity provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Federal and State Program Managers representing $2.5 billion in early stage funding have been invited to present at a series of events to next generation technology entrepreneurs and innovation supporters from across the United States. This event is a coveted opportunity for those involved in the development of groundbreaking, high-risk technologies, including women-owned and minority-owned firms.

If you’re an innovator, entrepreneur, researcher, or small technology firm, don’t miss this opportunity.

Every SBIR Road Tour stop provides an in-depth understanding of agency technology funding priorities, a review of regional innovation support resources, and one-on-one meetings with high level decision makers.

For years researchers have used the Matchmaker feature in NIH RePORTER to identify NIH-funded projects similar to their supplied abstracts, research bios, or other scientific text. Matchmaker was recently enhanced to make it just as easy to identify NIH program officials whose portfolios include projects in your research area.

After entering your scientific text (up to 15,000 characters), Matchmaker will analyze the key terms and concepts to identify up to 500 similar projects. Those projects will continue to show on the Projects tab with handy charts to visualize the results and quickly filter identified projects by Institute/Center, Activity Code, and Study Section. A new Program Official tab identifies the program officials associated with the matched projects and includes its own filters for Institute/Center and Activity Code. From the list of program officials you are one click away from their contact information and matched projects in their portfolios. Never before has it been so easy to answer the question “Who at NIH can I talk to about my research?”

The Grants Resource Center (GRC), a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), has enhanced the research and sponsored programs capabilities of higher education institutions since 1967. A subscription to GRC provides UNO with access to a comprehensive suite of tools, services, and expertise to improve your office’s efficiency and increase your institution’s success in securing competitive grants from federal and private sponsors.

Funding Opportunity Information

GRC’s proprietary search engine, GrantSearch, includes 2,000 private and federal funding opportunities screened for recurrence and for higher education eligibility. Search results provide a high proportion of viable opportunities because the database excludes solicitations that are limited to a specific region, that make fewer than three awards annually, and for which higher education institutions are not eligible to apply or partner.

Resource Library

The members-only GRC website serves as a clearinghouse for higher education grant-seeking tools and resources. It provides access to the GrantSearch database, GRC publications and funding guides, and the GRC_News Twitter feed. The website also houses sample research administration policies, a library of funded proposals, and a weekly list of federal meetings.

Funding Search Form

Complete this form to have a GRC Program Advisor assist you in finding applicable funding opportunities.

Login information

Access to GRC is controlled by password and is only available for UNO employees and students. The UNO username and password are posted on SharePoint: https://sharepoint.uno.edu/research/default.aspx

In a partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program is recruiting three participants for a new Mappers-in-Training Program (MiTP) for a Fall 2018 field study in early October; the exact dates are expected to be confirmed by August 1. This program is open to enrolled graduate students.

The internship will include 1-2 days of land-based meetings at the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program offices in Los Angeles, and at the Southern California offices of NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to orient students to the missions and data needs of these federal agencies. Interns will subsequently spend 11 days aboard the NOAA Ship Rainier mapping the seafloor around the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. The MiTP will provide the opportunity to gain an understanding of how seafloor maps are used by federal agencies to support the U.S.’s blue economy, and make informed decisions about our coastal and ocean resources. It will also provide the opportunity to gain experience making seafloor maps using advanced multibeam sonar (sound navigation and ranging) systems, while also contributing in a significant way to NOAA’s ocean and coastal mapping mission. Towards the end of their time at sea, interns will be asked to give short presentations describing what they learned during their experience. These presentations will also provide an opportunity to discuss mapping as a career with the NOAA Ship Rainier’s officers, technicians and crew.
