Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Issues Call for Research Proposals

About $27 million will support research on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon incident on Gulf ecosystems, public health

RESTON, VA – The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) will award approximately $9 million per year for the next three years to support research on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon incident on the Gulf of Mexico. The new program, RFP-V, is the second GoMRI initiative to fund research by individual investigators or small teams of researchers.

GoMRI is a ten-year research initiative established in 2010 by a $500 million commitment from BP. GoMRI is administered by an independent Research Board, which consists of 20 experts in science, research administration, and public health. The Research Board evaluates research proposals following the merit review guidelines of the National Academies of Science and with procedures similar to those used by the U.S. National Science Foundation.

“The Gulf of Mexico is a remarkably rich and complex environmental system,” said Dr. Rita Colwell, Chairman of the GoMRI Research Board. “Identifying and unraveling these biological and oceanographic complexities requires a focused and long-term commitment. We are pleased that GoMRI is able to facilitate research that is helping to inform our understanding of these interactions.”

The RFP-V program will award grants ranging from $100,000 to $1,000,000 per year. GoMRI supports research in five thematic areas:

  1. Physical distribution, dispersion, and dilution of petroleum (oil and gas), its constituents, and associated contaminants (e.g., dispersants) under the action of physical oceanographic processes, air-sea interactions, and tropical storms.
  2. Chemical evolution and biological degradation of the petroleum/dispersant system and subsequent interaction with coastal, open-ocean, and deep-water ecosystems.
  3. Environmental effects of the petroleum/dispersant system on the sea floor, water column, coastal waters, beach sediments, wetlands, marshes, and organisms; and the science of ecosystem recovery.
  4. Technology developments for improved responses, mitigation, detection, characterization, and remediation associated with oil spills and gas releases.
  5. Impact of oil spills on public health including behavioral, socioeconomic, environmental risk assessment, community capacity, and other population health considerations and issues.

Research applications to the RFP-V program must address questions that will increase our knowledge of at least one of these five themes.

Individuals and teams interested in applying for research support under the RFP-V program must submit a Letter of Intent by 5:00 PM Eastern time on December 15, 2014. Full proposals will be due by March 13, 2015. It is anticipated that awards will be announced around November 13, 2015, and that most grants will run from 2016 through 2018. All RFP-V program requirements and guidelines are available on the GoMRI Web site.

FY2015 NASA EPSCoR Request for Proposals (RFP), which requests proposals from Louisiana researchers for possible submission to NASA by the Board of Regents. This RFP is being issued in anticipation of the release of the FY2015 NASA EPSCoR Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) to allow proposers sufficient time to prepare applications. Proposers must submit a notice of intent before a preproposal will be accepted. Notices of Intent (required) are due on November 24, 2014; pre-proposals are due on January 5, 2015.

Files associated with this RFP can be found on the Louisiana Board of Regents’ Office of Sponsored Programs website (http://web.laregents.org/) and on the Louisiana NASA EPSCoR website: http://lanasaepscor.lsu.edu/?page_id=268. This RFP, the notice of intent form, the pre-proposal template, and the budget form are all available to download. Additionally, a number of critical supporting documents have also been posted to the Louisiana NASA EPSCoR website page linked above. These include the official NASA EPSCoR CAN from last year, a full list of abstracts for winning proposals from the last two years, a comprehensive listing of research priorities across NASA Mission Directorates and Centers, the current space technology roadmap, and a structural breakdown of the space technology areas. Additional resources will be posted as/if they become available, including the NASA EPSCoR FY2015 solicitation.

 

My office, with the support and involvement of Crystal Ellerbe, Director of Federal Affairs, is planning to sponsor a coordinated trip to Washington D.C. with a group of researchers whose expertise is relevant to the Office of Naval Research (ONR).  The trip will, in part, entail attendance at ONR’s conference, Naval Future Force Science and Technology EXPO on February 4th and 5th of 2015.  Attending the ONR Future Force S&T EXPO with prepared ideas and project overviews will allow UNO researchers the opportunity to hone those ideas while developing vital connections with ONR program officers.  But participants on this trip will also be expected (and assisted) to plan and carry out visits to other funding agencies and program officers in the D.C. area, thus maximizing the overall utility of the trip.

As you can see by perusing the EXPO website, the priority ONR topics will be:

·         Assure Access to Maritime Battlespace

·         Autonomy & Unmanned Systems

·         Information Dominance - Cyber

·         Electromagnetic Maneuver Warfare

·         Expeditionary & Irregular Warfare

·         Platform Design & Survivability

·         Power & Energy

·         Power Projection & Integrated Defense

·         Warfighter Performance

So if any of these topics are related to your research, and you see ONR (and other DoD) programs as potential funding sources for your work, you should consider applying to be a part of this trip.

UNO researchers interested in being considered for inclusion in this trip must submit the following to VPResearch@uno.edu by October 23, 2014:

·         2 or 3 white papers (3 pages maximum for each) describing research project ideas relevant to Department of Defense funders (at least one should be specifically relevant to ONR)

·         Description of any current connections with ONR or other DoD program officers (please provides names and programs if possible)

·         A brief description of any close collaborators (industry and/or other universities) tied to your research relevant to this conference

·         Answers to the following questions:

o   Are you able and willing to commit to a trip to Washington D.C. for 4-5 days in early February of 2015 (inclusive of the conference dates of 2/4-2/5)?o   Will you commit to coordinating with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to prepare/hone white papers, visit plans, and communication strategies in advance of the trip?

o   Will you commit to participating in debriefing and problem-solving meetings with other trip participants during the trip?

o   Will you commit to leveraging the connections and information obtained on the trip to apply for external funding to support your research?

After receiving these pieces of information from interested faculty, we will determine who will be invited to make the trip.  At that point, invited researchers will be notified and we will begin coordination and preparation for a successful trip.  Slots will be limited, so please make sure that the materials you submit make a clear case for how your research can benefit from this investment.

I look forward to seeing your submissions by October 23.
