We have added a new page to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs web site. You can navigate to the page using the Funding Opportunities button located on our main site at http://orsp.uno.edu. Periodically we will be updating the page and adding new funding opportunities to the top of the list and removing expired opportunities from the bottom. Eventually we will organize the announcements by keywords. Because of the large number of opportunities currently available we wanted to post it as quickly as possible. The current list has funding announcements in Energy, Conservation and Housing and would be of interest to faculty/staff in Engineering, AMRI, PIES, Conservation Biology and CHART. As this page evolves it should become more targeted by topic to the research our faculty and staff are interested in.

Department Joins in Call for Innovative Solutions

By Lisa Daniel
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7, 2010 - The Defense Department is putting some of its most vexing challenges on the Internet for the public to help solve as part of a new initiative to invite creative solutions to government problems.

Pentagon officials submitted four challenges to the Challenge.gov website that launched today. The site, a White House initiative administered by the General Services Administration, offers millions of dollars in prizes to those who find solutions to challenges that span all areas of government, from improving health and public schools to advancing science, technology and the environment.

The administration's chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra, announced the launch at the 2010 Gov 2.0 Summit here today. Speaking alongside the administration's chief information officer, Vivek Kundra, Chopra said the site is an example of the administration's efforts to close the technology gap between the public and private sectors, bring the two together to solve the nation's problems, and reward innovation.

"We wanted an organizational model to take all the components we describe to engage the American people in problem solving," Chopra said.

Part of the reason for the technology gap, Chopra said, is that the private sector has moved forward with open-architecture Internet models, while the government has remained closed. Challenge.gov is designed for long-term success because of its "grassroots, bottom-up" architecture for inviting public input, he said.

Posted Defense Department challenges include:

-- A challenge from the Office of Naval Research, with more than $1 million in prizes, for white papers that solve problems in one of seven areas: enhanced perception systems for autonomous ground navigation, compressive sensing for urban warfare, flow noise mitigation by fish, chlorine-resistant sea water, reverse-osmosis membranes, measurement technology for high-noise assessments, and directed energy in maritime environments. Papers must be submitted by Nov. 10.

-- A challenge from the Air Force, in partnership with the Defense Department's Cyber Crime Center, to pioneer new investigative tools, techniques and methodologies. Fifteen prizes will be awarded. The deadline is Nov. 2.

-- A challenge from the Army Research Lab to create innovative and interactive solutions in virtual environments, with a focus on artificial intelligence. Entries must be submitted by Dec. 6, and prizes total $25,000.

-- The Defense Department's Technical Information Center offers a challenge for papers to be submitted by Feb. 7 to support the center's customer needs with the use of Web 2.0 and 3.0 technologies, delivering technical information to mobile devices and experimenting with tool suites.

Other challenges among more than three dozen posted today include:

-- A NASA challenge to build an aircraft that can fly 200 miles in less than two hours using the energy equivalent of less than a gallon of gasoline per occupant. The team with the best combination of efficiency and speed will win $1.5 million.

-- An Agriculture Department challenge, as part of First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign, to create healthy – and tasty – new recipes for school lunches. Winners in various categories will share $12,000 in prizes.

-- The Education Department and National Education Association Foundation are challenging public school educators to identify their most pressing classroom problem, and propose a solution. More than $67,000 in prizes is available.

The Challenge.gov site offers details for responding to challenges, and challenges can be searched by topic or department.

The EPSCoR Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF) Program through the Louisiana Board of Regents provides funds to tenure-track (not tenured) faculty in science or engineering for travel to funding agencies to visit with program managers or to give major, invited presentations.  Faculty in the following disciplines can apply:

  • Biological sciences (all)
  • Mathematical & computer sciences
  •  Earth & environmental sciences (Geology, Oceanography, Environmental)
  • Engineering (all)
  •  Physical sciences (Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics)
  • Social & behavioral sciences

Speaking with a program officer can provide insight on the proposal structure, the peer review process, and the focus of the agency; this can make your proposal more competitive.  An opportunity to make a presentation can make you more known in your field and open other doors for your career.  TGEF funding can pay for most or all of the expenses related to these trips which is important with the cuts in general fund budgets.

The awards are limited to $1,200 for travel expenses and the expenses must follow state travel guidelines.  Up to  $1,200 can also be obtained for the travel expense of a mentor that accompanies the faculty on the trip.

For more information on the program and the application process, please refer to the attached Request for Application.  The overall deadline for applications is June 30, 2015.  However, your application must be submitted at least 30 days prior to your proposed trip.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 280-6836 or send an email to stateORSP@uno.edu.

This was sent to all faculty and staff.
